OMER, MI. – August 20, 2018 (wnem.com) According to an online news report from wnem.com, a woman from Georgia was seriously injured August 19 in a vehicle wreck in Omer, Michigan.*

The crash occurred at approximately 10:45 a.m. on August 19 in Omer, a small city in Michigan with a population of about 300. The Arenac County Sheriff’s Office reports 52-year-old Karen Lee, of Dacula, Georgia, was driving westbound on U.S. Route 23. Near the area of Washington Road, an eastbound vehicle crossed the centerline and struck Lee’s vehicle. 

Lee suffered serious injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital, St. Mary’s Medical Center. Two passengers in her vehicle — 21-year-old Amy Lee and 24-year-old Timothy Lee — were also injured and transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center. Their current medical conditions are not known. It is assumed the two passengers are Karen Lee’s children, but reports did not say whether or how the three are related. 

The driver of the other vehicle, 35-year-old Bryan Bell, of Saginaw, Michigan, reportedly sustained non-life threatening injuries. It is not clear if he was treated on scene or transported somewhere for treatment.

Deputies say Bell has not been charged at this time, but it is not clear whether he will soon face charges in connection with the wreck. It is not clear what caused Bell to cross the centerline of the road. Officials do not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash. The Arenac County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the crash and has not yet released additional information to the public.
