The driver in the crash that killed a Lincoln High School teen Monday died in the hospital as a result from her injuries.

Jessica Lynn Varney, a 24-year old Ypsilanti Township resident, died at St. Joseph's Hospital, where she was taken after Monday's crash in Ypsilanti Township.

She was the cousin of the vehicle's passenger, 16-year-old Augusta Township resident Caitlyn Nichole Varney, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The information is according to a report issued by the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office.

The accident occurred at 8:45 a.m. on Whittaker Road, near Sea Mist Drive, when a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix crashed into a tree. Police said the vehicle was traveling north on Whittaker, ran off the road and struck the tree head-on.

The case is still under investigation, but police said, “The lack of seat belt usage appears to be a factor.”

Anyone with information related to the crash is asked to call Sgt. Lisa King at 734-973-4694.
