Fatal near Niles kills Dowagiac woman


NILES (WKZO) -- A Dowagiac woman is dead and two others injured after a three vehicle collision along U.S. 12 near Niles.

Berrien County Deputies say it appears that 55-year-old Lorelei Kickels was killed when a Pick-up truck crossed the centerline on the two lane state road and slammed into her car head-on.

A motorcyclist trailing one of the vehicles early Friday morning struck the wreckage and suffered minor injuries.

The name of the 28-year-old driver of the pick-up was not released because he may be charged.

He is being treated for his injuries at South Bend Memorial.

Police say it does not appear that drugs or alcohol were not involved.
