Two people died in this crash. One was my aunt. The other my cusin. I want to know if it was because of a faulty road construction or an act of mother nature?
In the larger scheme of things, does it really matter?

What a horrific accident! How horrible to be out doing your job and have the road collapse under your car.

I'm so sorry for their family.

Wow, my thoughts go to the families! What a tragedy! Missy, I am so sorry for your families. I am no expert, but it sounds like an act of Mother Nature. What road could withstand erosion of that magnitude? Everyone, while it didn't say if the road was covered with water or not, do NOT drive on any road covered... this is one of the many reasons why. You never think that even if the road isn't covered with water, that the soil/dirt underneath might have been eroded away by the rushing water.

Amen to that. I delivered a daily paper for 3 1/2 years and know the hard, and often unappreciated, work paper deliverers go through. That 51 y.o. woman and her 16 y.o. nephew sound like hard workers, out before the dawn of today. That road collapse is just incredible. 40 to 50 feet is a long way to fall.
I believe the teen may have been my exhusbands nephew. That stretch of road they were on is very narrow and really heavily wooded in areas.It follows the lake with twist and turns. I pray for their families.

Maybe, in California, that's how you "Roll", Mr. Rush, Not in Michigan, where we "Care" about "Our Neighbor"! Take That!

My prayers go out to the families.

Glad to see that the Grand Rapids Press and their corporate masters were able to slip some legal CYA in the condolence statement. How thoughtful of them to think of their own bottom line during this trying time.

This is not an act of God,,, just an act of nature. I am saddened by the tragedy but it is just an accident, that's all. I hope everybody involved will be ok.

Ouch. I guess I'm glad we canceled our ride for today.
At first, I thought it was kind of insensitive, but then getting to know you thru other posts, I knew why you posted what you did. I'm still amazed by the deaths of people from these storms due to road collapses and trees falling. It could happen to any one of us. Please post kind thoughts for the families.

I applaud those who can get up at the buttcrackofdawn to deliver papers. I could never do it because I am too lazy! I work hard, but I don't do buttcrackofdawn. ;o)

Yes it was, in any way, shape or form.

Your's was not NEARLY as bad as some of the first couple on here. How inconsiderate some people can be is awful!
In defense of Hurley - People that know him here know he likes to ride his motorcycle often on that road.
This is a terrible and scary thing to happen.
