Adrian, Michigan Car Accident

Thursday, 01 August 2013 by

A 90-year-old man from Adrian, Michigan was sentenced to probation and will no longer be able to drive after he pinned a woman between two vehicles in a parking lot.

59-year-old Linda Guzman was the woman killed in the accident. Her family didn’t want John Ellis in jail, just off of the road so that this terrible incident would never happen again.

An Auburn Hills man drove off the exit ramp on M-59 at Squirrel Lake Road and into a heavily wooded area. He was driving a 2004 silver Chrysler Sebring.

Auburn Hills Lt. Jill McDonnel said that car took out a tree. The man driving was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver’s 24-year-old passenger from Southfield was taken to a nearby hospital is being treated for serious injuries.

No names are being released and the accident is still an ongoing investigation.

An 11-year-old boy was unfortunately killed in a boating accident on Sylvan Lake this last Sunday. The boy and his two sisters were being pulled behind a jet ski in an inner tube. Their father was driving. Another boat crossed their path and collided with the children.

The driver said he was unable to see the children just before the accident occurred.

The two girls, ages 6 and 10, were severely injured. 10-year old Adriana is still being treated at Beaumont Hospital, where she is in critical condition. Sadly, 6-year old Gabrielle died Monday.

On Tuesday, in the 1100 block of Michigan Avenue, a white pit bull bit a woman in Sheboygan. The dog was leashed, and the woman was bit just as she kneeled down to pet the dog. She said that the dog looked “playful.”

Police are now looking for the owner because state law requires that the dog be observed for 10 days to check for rabies.

Any information about the owner should be reported to the Sheboygan Police at 920-459-3333.

This is an unfortunate reminder that even “playful” looking dogs do bite.

A neighbor heard the explosion from next door. “It sounded like a bomb,” she reported. The man inside the home survived the explosion. He even drove himself to the hospital in Ann Arbor after retrieving his dog, which had ran out of the house frightened.

From the neighbor’s surveillance cameras, you could see the roof cave in and the windows and doors blow off. If caused by a natural gas leak, then this would be the second major explosion of its kind this year.

Only a few months ago, one man was killed in Royal Oak after a gas explosion that also affected over 30 other surrounding homes.

This is the 2nd year that consumers have been able to buy aerial fireworks in Michigan. Michiganders used to have to drive to the Ohio border to purchase “the good stuff.”

Before the ban on aerial fireworks was lifted, disappointed patrons would stop at Michigan’s firework stands and think:

You’re gonna stand there, ownin’ a fireworks stand, and tell me you don’t have no whistlin’ bungholes, no spleen splitters, whisker biscuits, hoosker don’ts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick, or one single whistlin’ kitty chaser?

Michigan has to balance its financial interest in selling more fireworks against the liability of having more dangerous ones.

While firework sales dramatically increased as a result of Michigan’s new law, so did the amount of injuries.

Two bicyclists were struck and killed by cars in two separate accidents in the Northern Lower Peninsula: an unidentified 29-year-old woman from Traverse City and Daniel Adams from Oden. Here is the official news story.

Michigan residents are looking for the SUV that hit Mr. Adams, dragging his body for almost two blocks, and then fleeing the scene.

It’s difficult to read about these types of accidents, and our condolences go out to everyone affected by them.

As more cars and bikes hit the open roads this season, it’s important to remember a few tips to keep our bikers safe.

I-75 Car Accident Kills Two

Tuesday, 02 July 2013 by

Officials had a hard time even identifying the type of car that collided with a semi truck on North 75, which killed the car’s two passengers. The license plate had melted from the immense fire that closed the freeway early Monday morning.

The accident happened late Sunday night, and the people inside the car were so badly burned that their dental records will likely identify them.

An Art Van employee was driving the semi and he, fortunately, only sustained minor injuries. According to the driver, he was able to escape his truck before it was engulfed in flames.
