Almost every driver has experienced
toe aggravating situation where the
motorist just in front of him made
a quick, unexpected stop.
But James Peltier, '44, had this ex-
perience Sunday night with some
unusual complications. He was driv-
ing west on US-12 about 13 miles west
of Ann Arbor when the motorist
ahead surprised him with a quick
stop. He was unable !to halt the
car and bumped into this automo-
bile in front of him.
After that one car after another
up to a total of eight * skidded and
collided in order to miss the cars
already blocking the highway. After
a brief period, four more cars smashed
into the others, making 12 alto-
These 12 tied up traffic on the
highway for nearly three hours. Sher-
iff's officers blamed poor visibility
and a slippery pavement resulting
from a heavy rain for. the collision
in which several Jackson and Detroit
people wer'e injured, none seriously.
Three persons were killed in an-
other accident which occurred near
Ypsilanti on US-112 early Sunday
