    I would just like to say what a wonderful man he was. He is my nefew's grandfather and was a very kind heared man who will truly be missed. Our hearts are broken. May God Bless his family knowing he was a man of God. Yes, people need to slow down! It seems they never do until they take a life.

    You need to look at the map for the accident that occured on US 127 you have it marked as Clinton Mi, should be Clarklake MI US127 @ Loomis RD. Recheck your details too. I live not even a mile down the road. It was impassable for 4 hours, North and South both closed many ambulances, fire rescue, police, sheriff, and troopers. I think you will find that the young lady that caused the accident also went to the hospital with a broken leg. The rest of the story is, why do people continuely die in this strip of the highway? Why isn't better patroled? They could make the budget with the tickets then can write here. So many people lost because people consistantly drive 70 mph or more in a 55 zone. 7 people dead in the last couple years 6 were under 21 in this 2 mile strip. Why is nothing being done? Why is this not even reported? People need to be careful. How come this isn't on the News?
