Investigation continues in accident that killed elderly woman
Oxford Township, Michigan — July 13, 2010 — Oakland County Deputies continue to look for clues in an accident that claimed the life of 84-year-old Roberta Jean Petty and injured two others.
According to authorities, Ms. Petty had been driving east on Lakeville Road during the mid-morning when her vehicle crossed the center lane and made contact with a westbound pick-up truck that was carrying two people.
The driver of the other vehicle, a 39-year-old Oxford man, was treated at the accident scene for minor injuries. The passenger, a 79-year-old man, was taken to Pontiac Osteopathic Hospital for treatment and evaluation. At the time of this report the man was reported to be in stable condition.
Seeing a copy of the Michigan accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about Michigan Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An Michigan accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
The “how” of an accident report is the officer’s best after-the-fact interpretation of the crash. Sometimes it’s possible to amend disputed facts in a report.
