COURTLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities in western Michigan have identified a 33-year old mother who was killed in a hit-and-run crash that also injured her twin sons.

The Kent County Sheriff’s office tells WOOD-TV that Meranda Baguss, of Sand Lake, was killed Friday when the driver of a pickup truck blew through a stop sign and struck her vehicle.

Police say her 5-year-old twins were critically injured in the 8:20 p.m. crash at a rural intersection in Courtland Township, near Grand Rapids.
