Fatal accident takes the life of 69-year-old Michigan man

In the aftermath of a car accident it might not even be clear to those that were driving the cars involved exactly why the accident took place. Even in situations where one or both drivers thinking that they know what caused the accident their interpretations may not match up, or even tell the entire story. If one of the driver's was not watching the road closely they may not have even seen the events that led up to the crash.

In a serious or fatal accident, the Michigan State Police may conduct an accident reconstruction investigation. But they may only be focused on determining whether any laws were broken, not discovering the underlying negligence that caused the accident. For example in a fatal accident that occurred on Interstate 75 in Michigan last night, it is not at all clear what factors led to a crash that killed a 69-year-old man.

In their investigation of last night's crash, law enforcement authorities have determined that two pickup trucks were driving side by side in the same direction in adjoining lanes of the freeway last night at about 10:30. One of the pickup trucks was pulling a trailer that carried a classic car. What they do not know is exactly how the two vehicles collided or which truck crossed into the other's lane.

After the two trucks collided initially, the drivers of both vehicles lost control of their trucks sending the two pickups in the median causing the trailer to become unhitched. This collision with the median ejected the 69-year-old, who was riding as a passenger, from one of the trucks. After he was ejected he was then struck by the other truck.
