Elderly Clio Man Dies in Fatal Thetford Township Crash

Alcohol or drugs don’t appear to be factors in a fatal three way crash on Saturday in Genesee County’s Thetford Township.

Police say an 81-year-old Clio man was heading east on Vienna Road in a 2020 Ford Escape when he struck a 2004 Chevy Classic driven by a 64-year-old Flint woman going north on Bray Road. Police say the woman failed to yield at the intersection.

The Clio man’s car overturned in oncoming traffic and was struck by a west bound 2021 Chevy Silverado driving by a 57-year-old Millington man. The pickup driver was unhurt, but the Clio man was killed at the scene. The Flint woman was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Police continue to investigate the crash.
