OAKLAND TOWNSHIP — An Oak Park woman was killed in a multivehicle crash in Oakland Township at around 8 a.m. March 25.

According to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, Joy Turnbore, 29, was driving a 2015 Dodge Journey westbound on Predmore Road when she was reportedly struck by a 2022 Hino box truck that was heading northbound on Rochester Road. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

There is a stop sign on Predmore Road, but at press time, deputies weren’t sure whether the Journey stopped before pulling in front of the box truck.

The truck was driven by a 34-year-old St. Clair Shores resident who was not injured in the crash. The truck also included a passenger, a 32-year-old resident of Center Line, who was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries.

All parties involved in the crash were wearing seat belts, and deputies said alcohol is not believed to be a factor.

The crash remains under investigation by the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Crash Reconstruction Unit.
