Bay City man killed in Huron County crash

(FAIRHAVEN TWP.) -- One person was killed in a traffic accident Friday evening in Huron County's Fairhaven Township. Huron County Sheriff Kelly Hanson says a 1998 Chevrolet Tracker driven by 21-year old Michael Briggs Jr. of Bay City, was traveling southbound on Geiger Road around 4:30 p.m. when it lost control on the icy roadway and entered the northbound lane. The Briggs vehicle was struck head-on by a 2012 Ford van, driven by Christopher Thick of Bad Axe. Shortly after the impact, the Briggs vehicle caught on fire. Thick and a passing motorist were able to free Briggs from the vehicle, but he died moments later. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Huron County Medical Examiner's Office. Thick refused medical treatment. The accident remains under investigation. Sebewaing Ambulance Service, Fairhaven Fire Department, and the Sebewaing Fire Department assisted at the scene.
