Austin said the Kent County Medical Examiner’s office notified the Sheriff’s Department shortly after noon Tuesday that Angeline Welsh, 89, had died as a result of her injuries.
Welsh was a back-seat passenger in a car driven by Larry Dorwin, 54, of Muskegon that was involved in a two-vehicle crash shortly after 4 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of Cleveland Street and 88th Avenue, west of Coopersville. Police said Dorwin’s car smashed into the back of a van that was making a left turn onto 88th Avenue.
Welsh was not wearing a seat belt, police said. She was taken to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids after the crash in critical condition.
The crash is still under investigation.
