Poor weather conditions results in fatal car crash

A fatal accident involving two cars resulted in the deaths of two 82-year-old women in one vehicle, as well as serious injuries to the 53-year-old male driver of the second car. Authorities attributed the accident to a combination of factors including inclement weather and poor road conditions. With the seasons changing, it is more important than ever that motorists remain aware of the weather in order to drive safely to avoid injury.

The accident occurred November 9 in Rapid Rivers, Michigan. The 82-year-old female motorist apparently lost control of her car, which was traveling east on U.S. 2 to the west of U.S. 41. At approximately 4:30 p.m., her car traveled across the centerline in the road, and was hit by another car traveling west. State police indicated that the loss of control experienced by the female driver had much to do with the condition of the road, which was covered with slippery slush and snow.

The two women in the first car died at the site of the crash. The driver of the other vehicle was rushed via ambulance to a nearby hospital, where he was reported to be in fair condition. No other occupants were in his vehicle. State police indicated that all three persons involved in the accident appeared to have been wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash.

A detailed investigation of the accident and its causes is being conducted by Michigan state police, who dispatched an accident reconstruction expert to the site to gather evidence and information.
