EBEN - A 59-year-old Munising woman was killed Saturday in a one-vehicle rollover in Alger County, according to Michigan State Police at the Negaunee Post.
Jill Siltala was driving south on ET Road, south of Eben, at about 7 p.m. when her 2004 Mazda Tribute left the right side of the road and slammed sideways into a power pole, shearing it off, said troopers. The vehicle overturned and came to rest on its wheels.
Siltala, the lone occupant, was pronounced dead at the scene. She was extricated from the vehicle with the Jaws of Life.
State police continue to investigate the accident and say alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.
Assisting at the scene were Rock River Fire and EMS, Alger County EMS. troopers from the Munising detachment, and UPPCO.
