LA GRANGE TOWNSHIP — A mother and child were hurt in a one-car crash Friday, according to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Richard Benhke reported that at approximately 7:42 a.m., his deputies were called out to investigate a personal injury accident that occurred at the intersection of Pokagon Highway and Oak Grove Road in La Grange Township. Erika Lane Stoop, 31, with her 4-year-old daughter, of Dowagiac, was driving westbound on Pokagon Highway.
