Valentine’s Day Car Crashes Cause Serious Injuries for Lansing Residents

Comments Off

Three Car Crash Injures Two Delta Township Residents

A Valentine’s Day evening crash has left one Lansing area resident in serious condition at a local hospital.  The crash, which occurred near the intersection of North Cedar Street and Cedar Park Drive, resulted after a 53-year-old man traveling south crossed over into the northbound lane and struck a Chevy Blazer head-on.  A third vehicle was struck when the Chevy ricocheted after the impact of the first collision.

Two Taken to Hospital, One Refused Treatment

The man was taken to McLaren Hospital and suffered serious injuries, including head and chest injuries.  The other driver, a 38-year-old Lansing woman was taken to Sparrow with non-life threatening injuries.  The third driver in the accident, a 33-year-old Holt man refused medical treatment.  No word as to what caused the accident yet, although the Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate.  The crash shut down Cedar Street for four hours last night.

Earlier Crash Kills One, Leaves Pregnant Woman in Critical Condition

Unfortunately, the evening crash was not the only to occur on Valentine’s Day.  Earlier in the day, around 11:30 a.m., a crash occurred near Lansing Road and Mt. Hope.  That accident occurred when a van traveling northbound on Lansing Road collided head-on with a vehicle heading westbound on Mt. Hope.  Again, police are unsure about the cause of the accident, but the crash resulted in the death of one driver and serious injuries to the second, a pregnant woman.  A third individuals was also taken to the hospital in critical condition.  Police say that accidents do not occur very frequently at that intersection, but when they do, they are serious because of the speeds at which people drive.  It is very important to take it slowly during times such as these, when the weather is icy and snowy.  Even if the roads seem dry, it’s always best to exercise precaution.
