U of M Freshman from Manistee Hitch a Ride to Atlanta with Alumni After Car Accident in TN

Posted: Updated:

For three Manistee freshman at the University of Michigan, this weekend was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime.

But sometimes road trips can have unexpected detours.

The three Manistee freshmen and two other Michigan students were driving to Atlanta for Saturday's game against Syracuse.

But their car was struck by another vehicle in Tennessee, sending them into a tree and totaling their car.

Their trip seemed over, until an RV of Michigan Alums noticed them on the road and decided to pick them up and take them along for the ride.

The Michigan alums have already offered to give them a ride back to Ann Arbor.
