I received this information a bit ago and wanted to share it with those of you who might have known this young man and/or his family.
LUCE COUNTY -- A fatal accident in Luce County is under investigation.
According to the State Police, the crash involved a State Police car and a second vehicle. It happened shortly after 11pm Monday night in Pentland Township, at the intersection of M-28 and County Road 403.
The initial report says the State Police vehicle, out of the Newberry Post, collided with the second vehicle which apparently pulled into the troopers path. The driver and only occupant in that car, 23-year-old Michael Jago II, was killed.
He is the son of the Luce County Under Sheriff.
The two troopers involved received serious injuries and were taken to Helen Newberry Joy Hospital and were later transferred to Marquette General. The troopers names have not been released and the crash remains under investigation.
Further, the following information was on one of the snowmobiling websites and I have copied it here for you. This post is from Law Dog who is one of the LEO's that helps patrol trails and has worked with Undersheriff Mike Jago for many years.
"I want to thank everyone for the prayers and condolences on behalf of our Under Sheriff Mike Jago... His son was involved in a fatal accident last night and the two troopers were injured as well. Its a very difficult time for all involved. Some of you had the pleasure of meeting Mike whom I work with on the trails. I am posting an address where cards can be sent per the request of some members on here...The Under Sheriff's son has a baby and a wife. He was a member of the Michigan National Guard and the Newberry Fire Department:
