Sitting Duck Update
On October 13, 2021, a crash occurred in Shiawassee County, Michigan, that resulted in the preventable and unfortunate death of a 41-year-old man from Flint. He was apparently traveling eastbound on I-69 when his vehicle ran into the back of a semi trailer. The semi truck was parked on the shoulder of the road and, in all likelihood, the semi truck was parked illegally on the shoulder of the highway.
