Michigan man dies while driving through Grand Tetons

A 60-year-old Rochester Hills, Michigan, man died at the scene of two-car, head-on collision in Grand Teton National Park last week. According to park authorities, the two vehicles each contained a driver and a passenger. Thankfully, none of the other three people involved in the crash were injured.

The county coroner is still trying to determine the cause of death for the Michigan driver. It was not evident if he died as a result of the car crash or if there was a medical emergency just before impact.

A five-mile stretch of road within the national park was closed for about four hours last Thursday afternoon. Investigators continued investigating the scene of the fatal car accident into the evening. Traffic was rerouted, and along with construction throughout the park, caused additional delays for most motorists. Authorities hope to have answers in a few more days as to why and how the accident occurred, and what exactly killed the Michigan tourist.

The Grand Teton National Park resides just north of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and covers more than 310,000 acres.

Because Michigan is a no-fault state, the Michigan Assigned Claims Facility does not cover out-of-state accidents in states with no fault insurance benefits. However, if a Michigan resident is injured in a car accident in a pure tort state, he or she will still qualify for Michigan's No-Fault Personal Injury Protection benefits. Accident victims who suffer catastrophic injuries will almost always want to collect their PIP insurance benefits, because it includes unlimited medical care and three years of lost wages.
