A Van Buren County woman has died from injuries she received in a motorcycle crash nearly a week ago, according to police.

According to our CBS Affiliate in Kalamazoo, the crash happened on M-40 near M-43 in Waverly Township last Sunday.

Police say 54-year-old Mary Jo Hendershot of Paw Paw was the passenger on a motorcycle driven by Kevin Rocheleau, 54, also of Paw Paw. The couple was hit by a mini-van driven by a 38-year-old Indiana man.

Police say the driver turned into the path of the motorcycle.

Police are investigating the crash and will hand over the results of their investigation to the Van Buren County Prosecutor.
