DENSE FOG ADVISORY

Until 11 AM

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids issues a DENSE FOG ADVISORY until 11 AM for nearly every county in West Michigan save for our Indiana bordering counties of Berrien, Cass, St. Joe, and Branch.  It doesn't mean it won't be foggy there!  The combination of yesterday evening's rainfall, light winds while you were sleeping, and our unusually cool airmass is a near perfect recipe for visibilities under a mile and perhaps as low as 1/4 mile.  This is enough to change how you drive.  Please keep it safe this morning, and slow it down if you can.  Stay with wwmt.com for your weather!

FLINT, Mich. (AP) - One person was killed and two were critically injured in a Flint traffic crash involving a Michigan State Police cruiser.
   
State police say the crash happened Thursday afternoon when a trooper was chasing a fleeing vehicle.
   
The trooper from the Flint post tried to pull over the suspect's car, but the suspect refused and ran a stop sign. Police say the trooper pursued the suspect and crashed into another vehicle traveling through the intersection. The suspect fled the scene.
   
The Flint Journal reports all three of those inside the vehicle struck by the state police cruiser were taken to an area hospital. One of them died, and the others are in critical condition.
   
The trooper and a passenger, who was a civilian doing a ride-along, suffered non-life threatening injuries.
