Police say weather to blame for fatal Barry Co. crash

BALTIMORE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - State police say slippery roads and poor visibility are to blame for a deadly accident in Barry County Saturday night.

It happened on M-37 in Baltimore Township around 11 p.m. Troopers say a 16-year-old driver from Hastings hit a man who was in the road.

Michigan State Police identified the victim as 50-year-old Tim Nixon, also from Hastings. They say he was apparently wearing dark clothes, walking in the area before the accident.

Police are still trying to figure out why he was in the road. Speed, alcohol and drugs are not considered factors in the crash.
