“A person of interest has come forward with an attorney to represent her,” said Michigan State Police Brighton post Sgt. Chris Pascoe. “The woman has turned over her vehicle. Everything else is still under investigation.”
Jordan Siegel, 14, and his sister, Ashley, 11, were killed when the SUV driven by their stepmother, Dawn Siegel, rolled several times along southbound U.S. 23 in Pittsfield Township shortly before 3 p.m. on June 22. Five other members of the family were injured.
Siegel told police another vehicle cut her off and she swerved into the median to avoid the other vehicle, but was sideswiped. The other vehicle was described as a light gray Honda Odyssey minivan with a temporary license plate.
The Siegel children split their time between Novi and their father and Royal Oak and their mother, where they attended Royal Oak Middle School.
