LOCKPORT TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A car accident that occurred Thursday, Nov. 21, on U.S. Highway M-60 near Lockport Township has resulted in the death of one of the drivers involved.

Dwayne Detwiler, 76, of Three Rivers, Mich., died Wednesday, Nov. 27, as a result of injuries he sustained during the car crash. The other driver involved, Larry Westcomb, 21, of White Pigeon, Mich., was going east when either he or Detwiler, who was heading west, crossed over the highway's center line and collided with the opposite car.

After Detwiler's vehicle rolled several times, he was transported to Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo, Mich., by helicopter with severe injuries. Westcomb was taken to Three Rivers Health Hospital for minor injuries.

Officials do not believe alcohol or unworn seat belts were factors in the accident, a news release from the St. Joseph County Sheriff's Department said. The case will be handed over to the St. Joseph County Prosecutors Office for possible charges, the release said.
