A woman from Durham has become the third person to die from personal injuries suffered in a hit-and-run in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
According to a report in The Grand Rapids Press, 26-year-old Durham resident Jonel Hoogterp died at a hospital in Marquette, Michigan on July 31.
Hoogterp, formerly a resident of Engadine, Michigan, died nearly one week after the deaths of the other two victims of the July 25 accident in Mackinac County, Michigan. The other two victims were 24-year-old Kent City, Michigan resident Sara Dobbrastine and 31-year-old Durham resident Julie Hatch.
According to police, 28-year-old Sanford, Michigan resident Dustan Lyle Bowen drove his vehicle into a crowd of people walking along the side of the road. Police say in addition to the three fatalities, two others suffered injuries.
Bowen remains in prison on $1 million bond and is faced with charges including second-degree murder.
