Houghton County Car Accident Kills Michigan Tech Student

A Michigan Tech student was killed in a Houghton County car accident.  Lee Drelles from Ludington was killed when a car in which he was a passenger was involved in an accident.  Other passengers, Jared Bussey and Brett Jenkins, were seriously injured.  The driver was treated for his injuries and later arrested.  The driver and passengers told police the accident occurred after the driver swerved to avoid hitting a deer south of Michigan Tech's campus.  The vehicle rolled several times.  Speed and alcohol appear to have been factors in what caused the crash.

I am so sorry to hear about this accident.  My sympathies go out to the Drelles, Bussey, and Jenkins families and to the families of the driver and other passengers as well as to the entire community at Michigan Tech.  Anytime someone so young is killed or injured in a car accident, it is an especially tragic loss.

Our top rated law firm represents families of people who have been killed or injured in car accidents.  Michigan No Fault benefits are available to cover medical expenses and a portion of the funeral expenses.  There may also be other benefits available to the injured passengers depending on the severity of their injuries.  In addition, the Drelles family has a claim against the drivers for damages in excess of those provided by their No Fault insurance.  They may also have a claim against the bar which served the driver alcohol called a dram shop claim.  The other passengers may also have similar claims, again depending on the severity of their injuries.
