Mich. storm toll: 4 die after shoveling, 3 in crashes

Posted: Updated:

FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Michigan authorities blame the heavy snow and deep freeze for at least seven deaths - four people who collapsed after shoveling snow and three killed in traffic accidents.

Flint police Capt. T.P. Johnson tells MLive.com that a 75-year-old man was digging out his car Tuesday when he collapsed. Johnson didn't release the man's name.

The Oakland County medical examiner's office says a 36-year-old Detroit man, a 57-year-old Milford man and a 67-year-old Pontiac woman all died after shoveling snow.

Police say a car slid in front of an oncoming propane tanker Monday in Otsego County, killing the car's passenger. Fifty-year-old Timothy Nixon of Hastings was killed by a car while walking Saturday in Barry County, and 27-year-old Branden Hewitt of Owendale died Saturday in a two-vehicle crash in Huron County.
