Slippery Roads Likely Factor In 2 Michigan Crash Deaths
Authorities say slippery road conditions amid wintry weather likely were a factor in separate crashes that killed two people in Michigan.
In western Michigan, a two-vehicle crash Thursday in Allegan County's Wayland Township left one person dead. Authorities say one vehicle likely lost control and was struck by an SUV. Police say a woman in her 70s in the first vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene. The crash is under investigation.
In southern Michigan, the Jackson Citizen Patriot reports an 18-year-old woman died after apparently losing control of her vehicle on an icy roadway in Jackson County's Henrietta Township and hitting a tree.
A pre-winter storm that hit the Midwest and other parts of the U.S. brought snow and freezing rain to Michigan, leaving roads slick around the state.
