Michigan State Police are currently investigating a devastating collision that took place on Friday, Oct. 27, at approximately 11:30 a.m. The incident occurred on M-115, near 5th Avenue, in Osceola County. Tragically, the collision resulted in the loss of one life.
The events leading to the fatal accident began when a tree fell, obstructing a significant portion of the road. This unforeseen obstacle led to a traffic backup, setting the stage for the tragic collision. A tour bus transporting students from a local Traverse City school’s sports team collided with a Buick Enclave.
The impact was forceful enough to propel the Buick into a guardrail, subsequently causing it to sideswipe a tractor-trailer. The tour bus, still in motion, veered across the centerline, striking both the guardrail and an oncoming vehicle.
