2nd person dies following I-94 pileups

Authorities say a second person has died following a series of crashes along snowy Interstate 94 in southwestern Michigan earlier this month.
State police First Lt. Dale Hinz tells the Kalamazoo Gazette that 54-year-old driver Andrew Griesemer of the Detroit suburb of Northville died Sunday at a hospital in Kalamazoo. His mother, 78-year-old Carol Griesemer of Northville, was a passenger and also died.
The Jan. 17 crashes happened near the Van Buren County community of Hartford. Police say nine vehicles were involved in a crash in the eastbound lanes before two semi-trucks collided, causing a pileup of more than 40 cars and trucks. Another crash involved 12 vehicles in the westbound lanes.
More than a dozen people were injured. Police say drivers were going too fast in white-out conditions.  (AP)
