WAVERLY TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- A collision between a van and a motorcycle that took place a week ago Sunday has now claimed a life.

Mary Jo Hendershot was riding on the back of a motorcycle driven by Kevin James Rocheleau. Both are aged 54 and from Paw Paw.

They were southbound on M-40 in Waverly Township  in eastern Van Buren County when a van driven by a 38-year-old Indiana woman turned left into their path, trying to pull into a gas station.

The name of the woman driving the van has not been released because she may a face charges. The prosecutor's office has recieved the accident report and the death of one of the victims would certainly change the charges under consideration. 

Hendershot was pronounced dead at Bronson Hospital over the weekend.

They were not wearing motorcycle helmets.

Alcohol was not a factor.
