Bennett Ray Davison

BERRIEN COUNTY, Mich.—A man has been formally charged in connection with a March 6 crash that resulted in the death of a 36-year-old woman.

Bennett Ray Davison, of Buchanan, is charged with operating while intoxicated, which carries a maximum sentence of one year.

At this arraignment on June 12, bond was set at $10,000. Davison is due back in court on June 28.

According to the prosecutor, Davison was not charged in connection with the woman’s death, as it is believed that his impaired driving was not a cause of her death.

On March 6 around 9 p.m., a farm truck was traveling down Red Bud Trail near Howe Lane and hit a woman who was attempting to cross the road from the east, police said.

The woman was pronounced deceased at the scene.
