Michigan Family Gets Apology After Dead Man Billed $500

July 21, 2014

A family says it has received an apology after a dead man was sent a bill for $500 to help defray the cost of emergency response to the northern Michigan car crash in which he died.

Carl Norman Little’s stepdaughter Rebecca Beck tells WPBN-WTOM she couldn’t believe that the bill was sent following last month’s crash on Interstate 75 near Mackinaw City. The Gladstone man lost control of the car and died at the scene.

Many communities in Michigan issue such emergency response bills. A statement on Mackinaw City’s website says the bill likely should have gone directly to an insurance company. It says steps are being taken to make sure a similar situation doesn’t happen again.

Beck says the bill now has been sent to the insurance company.
