Fowlerville Man Still Critical After I-96 Crash West of Howell

8/31/14 - A Fowlerville man was still in critical condition Monday after a 2-vehicle crash Saturday on I-96 west of M-59. According to the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department, 53-year-old Robert Heilner was westbound on the freeway at about 6:40 a.m. when the pickup truck he was driving was rear-ended by a Toyota Avalon driven by 31-year-old Rick Wilcox of Lowell, Michigan. According to Undersheriff Mike Murphy, the GMC Sierra truck Heilner was driving rolled over several times before coming to a rest. Murphy tells WHMI that no charges have been issued yet in the accident - although it appears the Toyota driver was at fault. Westbound I-96 was shut down for four hours as a result of the accident. Heilner was airlifted by Survival Flight Helicopter to the University of Michigan Hospital, where he remained in critical condition at midday Monday.(TT)
