Authorities: Both drivers in deadly Livingston County crash had invalid licenses
State officials say one of the drivers in a two-vehicle crash that killed five people in Michigan was behind the wheel on an expired license, meaning neither of the drivers involved had a valid license.
Michigan Secretary of State spokesman Fred Woodhams tells the Livingston Daily Press & Argus Thursday that 39-year-old Albert Boswell "wasn't able to drive legally."
The SUV driven by Boswell was struck Tuesday night at an intersection in Livingston County's Oceola Township by a car driven by 22-year-old Matthew Carrier. Woodhams says Carrier's license was suspended due to unpaid tickets and an "unsatisfactory" driving record.
Police say Carrier failed to stop at a stop sign.
Boswell, Carrier and a passenger in Carrier's car are in critical condition. Two other people in the car were killed. Three passengers in Boswell's vehicle were killed.
BRIGHTON, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a man accused of ignoring a stop sign in a crash that killed five people in Michigan was driving despite a suspended license.
Fred Woodhams, spokesman for the secretary of state, tells The Detroit News that Matthew Carrier's license was suspended because of unpaid tickets and the 22-year-old's "unsatisfactory" driving record.
Police say Carrier's car failed to stop at a sign in Livingston County on Tuesday night, striking another vehicle on Michigan Highway 59. Carrier and two others are in critical condition.
Stephanie Lee Allen says her son is a "good kid" who has made bad choices.
The five dead include Candice Dunn, who was returning home from a banquet. She had been honored by the state Corrections Department as probation agent of the year.
