Mary Miller was driving a Chevrolet Equinox east on East Chippewa Road around 2 p.m. when she crossed the center line and drove off the roadway near South Sandow Road, according to Michigan State Police.

She drove through a ditch along Chippewa Road, crossed Sandow Road and crashed into a tree. Authorities say she was pronounced dead from her injuries.
