Swanton victims identified in fatal Michigan crash

MONROE - The identities of a father and son killed when a stolen car crashed Tuesday at Head-O-Lake Road and Old U.S. 223 in Whiteford Township were released yesterday by the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

Killed were the driver, James J. Dennis, 19, of 2012 Madison Ave., and Scott E. Dennis, 45, of Swanton. Christopher Caughhorn, 18, of 5600 West Alexis Rd., Apt. 134, another passenger, was in serious condition last night in Toledo Hospital.

Deputies said the car was southbound on Head-O-Lake at high speed when James Dennis skidded through the intersection at Old U.S. 223 and struck the embankment at the Conrail tracks, sending the vehicle airborne for about 60 feet and overturning on its top. The car was reported stolen from a home in the 7400 block of Manore Road near Whitehouse.
