HUDSON TWP. - A Quincy High School student died Wednesday morning on M-34 in Lenawee County in a crash between the pickup he was driving and a tractor-trailer.
Lalo James Carrion, 18, of Quincy was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash a half-mile west of M-156, according to the Lenawee County Sheriff's Department. Sgt. Dan Rudd said Carrion was driving eastbound on M-34 at 9:51 a.m. when, for an unknown reason, his pickup crossed into the westbound lane. The left, front part of the pickup struck the left, front corner of a westbound tractor-trailer driven by Kathy Ann Faltynowicz of Box Elder, S.D.
Faltynowicz was not injured, Rudd said. Both drivers wore seat belts.
Deputies at the scene described the road as snowy or wet, Rudd said, but it is unclear if road conditions played a role in the crash.
School in Quincy was closed Wednesday due to icy roads, according to The Daily Reporter of Coldwater. Some school districts in Lenawee County closed or delayed the start of school Wednesday for the same reason.
Rudd said the principal of Quincy High School told him Carrion was driving to Adrian College for an appointment.

He enjoyed music, sports, and spending time with his friends and family. He was employed at Applebee's in Coldwater. He took his role as older brother very seriously.

Memorials in lieu of flowers may be made to the family or Michigan State Police Explorers program.
Lalo was not only a friend to his friends, he was a fan of his friends and he will be missed through out the community and especially in the Heffner house.
My son William is a senior at Quincy High School and Lalo was an inspiration to Willy. Lalo was his best friend, but more like a brother.
Thanks for stopping by to view this poem inspired by Lalo and please keep all concerned in prayer.
THE END IS REALLY NOT THE END, SO KEEP THE FAITH!

|I go to Quincy high school and last year after Lalo dies it didn't affect me much but after reading you poem I realized we losted a great guy in which I never got to know. As a new freshman i didnt really know people, your poems make me think that i have to live this life to the fullest, but when i do die if I know God then it really isn't over and I'll get to know the great people that left this earth before I got the chance.|

This is heartbreaking, but it is not the end for James or for us who truly believe. Beautiful, powerful tribute to a young man who left this world too soon; but he is with Jesus, and for him, pain is at an end! Well done!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend and sister in Christ Jesus, Karen Lynn. :( >tears <

|This was such a sad and all too soon tragedy but indeed it is not the end until the Lord comes. He is only sleeping until the day of judgement and he probably was saved rom years of pain and hurt that was coming his way.|
