Police were too busy pulling people over for going 3 mph over and having expired tabs. Sheriffs were circling downtown Jackson, where they outnumber the civilians 2 to 1, but instead of "protect and serve", they punish for nonsensical laws that society ought to ignore.

“Huh? Wha??”

@Bill - why blame the police? The ambulance and rescue teams are responsible for tings like this.

Having two identical addresses, both on lakes, within the same township had a little to do with the oversight.

That's what it was, an unfortunate oversight. Once the mix-up was realized, immediate response was given.

I don't think there is anything that can be said to console the accident victim, but hopefully the township and emergency responders will address the issue to prevent something like it from happening again.

Jackson County dispatch, ambulance service, law and fire rescue personnel are some of the finest in the state. Be thankful for what you have.
