Cros-Lex schools; family mourn loss

Cros-Lex school district staff member Zack Lanctot, 28, of Carsonville, has passed away as a result of his injuries sustained in a two-vehicle accident in Lapeer County earlier this month.

Lanctot’s vehicle collided with a pick-up truck head-on during a whiteout, caused by blowing snow on M-53 south of Marlette. He was taken to Mclaren Lapeer Hospital where he passed away this past weekend.

School officials have made a crisis team available for students as they returned to class on Monday.

Lanctot served as a long term substitute teacher and assisted with the schools athletic department.

He had also worked for the Carsonville-Port Sanilac school district.
