LAPEER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a second woman has died following a rural Michigan crash in which a car struck a parade vehicle.

Lapeer County sheriff’s officials said Wednesday that 76-year-old Janet Lough of Lapeer died the day before at a hospital. Lough was among two critically injured in the Saturday crash in Lapeer Township that also claimed the life of 80-year-old Jeanette Rumptz.

Rumptz of Metamora Township died at the scene after turning her car left and into the truck converted to resemble a steam locomotive. It was heading to the Metamora Country Days parade about five miles away.

Lough was among seven people ejected from the specialty vehicle.

Officials say the vehicle’s driver and another passenger remained in the hospital. Ten people were in the vehicle.

Authorities continue to investigate.
