Child killed in fatal Michigan car accident

A five-year-old child was killed in a tragic car accident in Michigan yesterday. The wreckage from the first collision also led to a second crash in which two senior citizens were injured. The child was airlifted to Covenant Hospital in Saginaw but died as a result of the injuries from the accident.

According to the Michigan State Police the first accident occurred when other vehicles in the eastbound lanes on the highway had come to a halt due to a traffic back-up. The Oldsmobile in which the child was a passenger approached the back-up but failed to stop before striking another car. The other car caromed into a third vehicle while the Oldsmobile went through the median and ended up in the westbound lanes.

This first accident then triggered another collision. An eastbound Buick was also unable to stop successfully before colliding with the stopped cars. The Buick struck four more cars, sending one of those cars into a sixth car. In the second accident an 82-year-old man and an 83-year-old woman were injured. Both were taken to the Bay Regional Medical center to treat their injuries.

It is not clear from local news reports whether there fog or some other reason that visibility may have been limited in the area of the crash causing multiple vehicles to crash into the back of stopped vehicles. Unfortunately sometimes even when there are no obstructions or other barriers to seeing an obstruction a distracted driver may not see something ahead of them in the road.
