A man faces charges in the deaths of a woman and her son in an icy, chain-reaction crash last month on I-94 in southwestern Michigan.
Carol and Andrew Griesemer died in the pileup in Van Buren County. The crashes on Jan. 17 spread to more than 40 cars and trucks.
Timothy Martinez, a 40-year-old from the Grand Rapids area, appeared in court Friday. The charges include reckless driving causing death. He’s accused of failing to slow down in snowy, icy conditions on I-94.
Martinez couldn’t be reached for comment Saturday. A home phone number isn’t listed.
Many tickets were issued to drivers in the pileup. (AP)
