SPRING LAKE, Mich. (Grand Haven Tribune)-- Family days in the park were the "big special thing" for Alan and Andrea Chase of Ferrysburg and their four children.
"Whenever we could get all six of us together, we would have a day at the park," Andrea reminisced.
One person will now be missing from those outings.
Alan Chase, 38, died early Wednesday morning when his semitrailer truck crossed a highway median near South Haven and hit another semi head-on.
"Everything was normal the night before," Andrea said.
Alan got up early and was out the door by 4 a.m., she said. He drove to Holland where he worked for Teddy's Transport. He picked up his truck and load, and started on his daily trip to Chicago.
Andrea said they still don't know what happened.
