Resolve To Give Blood In January For National Blood Donor Month

red crossThe American Red Cross asks eligible blood donors to make a resolution to give blood regularly in 2015, beginning with National Blood Donor Month in January.  National Blood Donor Month recognizes the importance of giving blood and platelets while honoring those who roll up a sleeve to help patients in need. It has been observed during January since 1970, and that’s no coincidence. Winter is an especially difficult time to collect enough blood to meet patient needs. Unpredictable winter weather can result in blood drive cancelations, and seasonal illnesses, like the flu, may cause some donors to be unable to make or keep blood donation appointments.  Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with O negative, A negative and B negative. With a shelf life of 42 days, red blood cells must be constantly replenished to maintain an adequate supply for patients. Individuals who come out to give blood Jan. 1 through Jan. 4 will receive a long-sleeve Red Cross T-shirt, while supplies last.  To learn more about donating blood and to schedule an appointment, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Sanilac County authorities are requesting the driver in a crash that occurred this fall that killed two Sanilac County teens be charged criminally in their deaths.  Investigators into the crash submitted their report in the first week of January which includes a warrant request for the driver for two counts of reckless driving causing death and one count of lying to authorities.  It is believed the driver, who officials believe was traveling at speeds over 100 mph on a gravel road, also gave false statements early in the investigation.   Seventeen year old Danielle Torrez, of Croswell, and eighteen year old Dakota Moore, of Applegate, were killed October 28 when the vehicle which was traveling westbound on Roach Road west of Croswell Road in Lexington Township, left the roadway and rolled several times.  The two teens were thrown from the vehicle.  Twenty-year old Laken Williams, believed to be the driver, reported the crash to police, and was taken to McLaren Port Huron Hospital.
