Heavy rain Friday morning may have been a factor in a traffic death in Gratiot County.  It happened about 6:00 a.m. on US-127 at the M-57 off ramp. The Gratiot County Sheriff’s Office says 73-year-old Linda Culp of Elkhart, Indiana, was found dead at the scene with her car broken down nearby. She had been hit by a van while walking on M-57.

The sheriff’s office said heavy rain may have made it difficult for the van driver, a 37-year-old man from Greenville, to see her. He was not injured. Alcohol or drugs are not believed to have been factors in the crash, which is still under investigation.
