A Porter woman and a Valparaiso woman died over the weekend, following a two-vehicle accident in Branch County, Mich., the Michigan State Police said.

The victims were identified as Corrinne Johns, 23, of Porter; and Alexis Schroeder, 19, of Valparaiso.

According to police, at 5:45 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30, Schroeder was driving a 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt, southbound on M-66, just south of Athens, Mich., when for an unknown reason she failed to yield for a flashing red light at the intersection of M-60, where the Cobalt was broadsided by a semi-tractor trailer westbound on M-60.

Johns was pronounced dead at the scene, police said; Schroeder died of her injuries on Sunday in a Kalamazoo. Mich., hospital.

The trucker was not injured, police said.
