Police: Crash kills 27-year-old man in Huron Co.

HURON COUNTY, MI (AP) -

Police blame weather conditions for at least two traffic deaths in Michigan as the heavy snow and bitter cold have made travel treacherous.

Crashes have closed major roads, and police have responded to large numbers of crashes around the state.

The Huron Daily Tribune says 27-year-old Branden Hewitt of Owendale was killed when he hit a snowdrift and struck another vehicle Saturday in Huron County's Brookfield Township.

State police say a 16-year-old driver hit 50-year-old pedestrian Timothy Nixon of Hastings around 11 p.m. Saturday in Barry County's Baltimore Township, about 30 miles southeast of Grand Rapids.

Police say road conditions were slippery, visibility was poor and Nixon wore dark clothing.

The state police Metro Post in Oak Park says its troopers responded to at least 100 crashes Sunday and Monday.
