Three dead in weekend wrecks


Three people died in two separate Livingston County wrecks over the weekend.

The Livingston County Coroner’s Office reports Scott Lightbody, 54, of Odell was pronounced dead after his motorcycle left the road and struck a culvert on Old Route 66 in Pontiac Township, just west of 1600 East Road Friday night.

Responding agencies included Pontiac Police, Livingston County Sheriff’s Police, State Police, Pontiac Fire/Rescue, Duffy Ambulance and the Livingston County Coroner. An autopsy was conducted Saturday and results are pending.

A two-vehicle accident on northbound Interstate 55 in Livingston County claimed two lives and both individuals were inside an SUV that struck the back of a moving semi tractor trailer as it approached a construction area early Saturday. No names have been released, pending family notification.

This accident remains under investigation by both State Police and the Livingston County Coroner’s Office.
