A Michigan couple and their 8-year-old son were killed when the 1929 Duesenberg they were riding in was broadsided by a Volvo driven by a 25-year-old who ran a stop sign. Two daughters, ages 7 and 10, were also injured in the crash. The driver of the Volvo was uninjured, though he may face charges of negligent homicide. The man who was killed had recently completed a ground-up restoration of the Duesenberg convertible, which was set to appear in a show this weekend.
