LAPEER COUNTY, Mich. - Lapeer County Sheriff’s Deputies are investigating a deadly crash on Burnside Road in North Branch.

Deputies say 17-year-old Adrianna Phouvone from Columbiaville was traveling east on Burnside Road. The 2007 Pontiac G5 driven by Adrianna traveled over the center line and rotated in the path of a westbound 2014 Chevrolet Malibu driven by a 57-year-old female from Clifford, according to Deputies.
