pence letter
Indiana Governor Mike Pence is commending Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and the Michigan State Police for their assistance in a horrific fatal crash on Interstate 94 last week.
In a letter to Governor Snyder, Governor Pence said, “The definition of a good neighbor is someone who comes alongside you in your time of need. Through these troopers, Michigan did just that. For that, we thank you, the Michigan State Police, and the troopers who certainly went above and beyond the call of duty. “ Indiana State Police say three people were killed and more than twenty others were injured in a collision involving 46 vehicles, including 18 semi trucks, in blinding snow near Michigan City on eastbound Interstate 94 last Thursday.
The letter reads:
Dear Governor Snyder,
I wanted to again extend my thanks for the assistance that Michigan State Police troopers provided -- on their own time -- during last week's accident on I-94.
We are grateful to the troopers who volunteered their time and their expertise to assist the Indiana State Police on the scene for several hours.  They stood shoulder-to-shoulder with our troopers to check on the injured, gather personal information, and help those involved get to safety. Thanks to their dedicated service, people were cared for more quickly, and we were able to clear the scene faster.
The definition of a good neighbor is someone who comes alongside you in your time of need. Through these troopers, Michigan did just that. For that, we thank you, the Michigan State Police, and the troopers who certainly went above and beyond the call of duty. I am sure you are rightly proud of them and their service.
Sincerely,
Michael R. Pence
Governor of Indiana
