Cassopolis woman injured in crash

JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP — A Cassopolis woman sustained injuries in a single-vehicle crash Wednesday, according to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Richard J. Behnke reported his office is investigating a single-vehicle crash, which occurred on M-60, west of Oak Grove Road in Jefferson Township. The crash took place around 3:15 p.m. Wednesday.

Emergency personnel responding to the scene found a single vehicle, which left the roadway.  The vehicle crashed through approximately 40 feet of fence line, overturning several times before striking a tree and coming to rest against the downed tree. The driver was identified as Lisa Marie Roddy, 46, of Cassopolis. Roddy was transported to Spectrum Health Lakeland Niles for treatment from injuries sustained in the crash.

Cass Central Fire Department and Pride Care Ambulance assisted on scene.

A seatbelt appears to have been used by Roddy, and alcohol may have been a factor in the crash, according to deputies.

This crash remains under investigation at this time.
