POKAGON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) Authorities say a crash on a snow-covered road in southwestern Michigan has killed a 15-year-old girl.

The death Wednesday of Rebecca Walker of Dowagiac raises to three the number of people killed on Michigan roads this week because of a pre-winter snowstorm.

Cass County Sheriff Joseph Underwood Jr. says the latest crash happened about 7:10 a.m. in Pokagon Township, about 25 miles southeast of St. Joseph.

Underwood says Walker's 16-year-old brother was driving when he lost control of the vehicle and collided with an oncoming vehicle. The sheriff says Nathan Walker was in stable condition at a hospital in South Bend, Ind., while the other driver was unhurt.

Police report two other fatal crashes in western Michigan on Monday.
