Passengers in rollover crash tell police Jeep began to ‘death wobble.’

GOLDEN TOWNSHIP – Passengers in a rollover crash Sunday, June 30, told the investigating sheriff’s deputy that the 2001 Jeep Cherokee they were riding in began to “death wobble,’ according to an Oceana County Sheriff’s Office accident report.

The crash occurred shortly after 3:30 p.m. on West Hazel Road near Emerald Street.

The driver, a 19-year-old Clarkston, Michigan woman, was transported by Life EMS to Mercy Health Partners Hackley Campus in Muskegon, and the passengers – a 20-year-old Highland, Michigan man and a 21-year-old Shelby Township (on the east side of the state), Michigan man – were transported by friends to Hackley, the report states.

The driver of the eastbound Jeep “lost control; was unable to regain control; and overcorrected, which caused the vehicle to overturn one time and come to a skidding halt on the driver’s side of the vehicle,” the report states. When the Jeep came rest, it was facing westbound in the eastbound lane.

“Per both passengers of the vehicle, the Jeep began to ‘death wobble,’ and the driver was unable to regain control. Both passengers indicated the driver overcorrected, and the vehicle rolled one time.”

All three people were wearing seat belts. Alcohol and drugs were not factors in the crash.
