Police have released the name of the woman killed in an early morning crash in Van Buren County.
Just after 6:00 a.m. emergency crews were called to the 78000 block of 48th Ave. in Covert Township. A passerby called 911 after spotting the wrecked Pontiac Grand Am and its deceased driver.
The victim has since been identified as Deanna Young-Brooks, 44, of Benton Harbor.
Police say speed is believed to be a factor in the crash which remains under investigation tonight.
Toxicology tests are now being conducted to determine whether drugs or alcohol played a role as well.
