According to police, a driver driving a gray sedan lost control of his vehicle due to the icy road conditions and crashed into a guardrail on the expressway. The driver was killed at the scene.
We are very sorry to hear about this fatal accident and our condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim.
According to IcyRoadSafety.com, there were approximately 477 deaths due to icy roads in the U.S. during the 2008-2009 winter seasons. Out of the 477 deaths, 18 victims died on icy roads in Michigan. Winter roads can be hazardous, so if weather conditions are dangerous we recommend that you do not drive if you do not have to. Conditions like snowstorm whiteouts, which obstruct visibility, and “black ice” makes the roads and driving very dangerous and unpredictable.
