Do you remember that fatal 53 vehicle pileup back in December?   Livingston County sheriff’s officials said Wednesday a lone driver traveling too fast for conditions caused the fatal pileup on interstate 96.

Officials anticipate seeking a charge of reckless driving or moving violation causing death against the driver, who was identified only as a Howell resident.

A sheriff’s investigator said Wednesday that the Howell resident was driving an SUV at an excessive rate of speed when the driver lost control and crashed around 9:50 a.m. Dec. 8.  Snow had blanketed the area and then froze, creating treacherous traveling conditions.

In all, 53 vehicles, including cars, trucks and semis, had jackknifed or crashed.  Some motorists also drove off the roadway.  Here’s more from the Lansing State Journal.
