1 Dead, 1 Injured In Lake Township ORV Accident

One woman is dead and another injured after the off road vehicle they were riding crashed in Lake Charter Township. 911 was called in the 1:00 hour Sunday morning. 23-year old Emily Boyd-Sarno of Bridgman was driving and 20-year old Kimberly Murphy of Stevensville was the rear passenger. The ORV ran into a basketball hoop and pole at the Bridgman Middle School. Both were ejected from the vehicle. Boyd-Sarno was pronounced dead on scene. Murphy was transported to Lakeland Hospital of St. Joseph with non-life threatening injuries. The women were found by family members who went looking for them after they went for a ride and never returned. Neither woman was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, which remains under investigation.
