Icy Roads A Factor In Fatal I-75 Crash

Bay County Sheriff deputies say icy roads were a factor in a fatal crash on I-75, south of Pinconning Tuesday night. Fifty-two-year-old Janie Sue Savage of Novi was killed in the accident, just after 9:00 p.m.

Her car hit the rear of a semi-tractor-trailer that had slid off the freeway, north of Coggins Road. Investigators say part of the trailer was on the freeway. The truck driver was not injured.

Authorities had northbound I-75, between Linwood and Pinconning, closed for four hours after the northern Bay County crash.
