WYOMING, Mich.– Two people are being mourned by the community after a deadly crash in Wyoming on Sunday.

Wyoming Police say it happened around 2:30 a.m. near the intersection of 28th St SW and Michael Ave SW.  When crews arrived, the people inside the car were pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash shut down a long stretch of 28th Street and cut power along Clyde Park Avenue; crews were called in to restore that electricity.

The victims in the crash have been identified as Kenny Cheatom and Brittney Milton, 21.  Brittney was an employee at the Applebee’s on 28th street. On Sunday evening, a vigil was held at that restaurant for the two victims.

Family members and Co-Workers tell FOX 17 they were blown away by the turnout and appreciate the support.

Investigators are still looking into what lead up to that crash but believe weather may have played a factor.

    I feel bad for the two that died in the wreck. I also feel bad for the mans wife because the woman that the man was driving with was not his wife smh.

      Phoenix, why does that matter? Ever think people can be friends helping each other out? I used to ride with a married male friend to and from work, didn’t mean anything other than we were riding together. To make assumptions really does not make you look all that pleasant.

      Totally irrelevant. My husband and I each have friends of the opposite sex with whom we each enjoy company with, because we are mature enough to maintain friendships without petty jealousy, since our relationship is secure enough to maintain friendships without feeling that they are some sot of threat to the relationship.

      wow really. two wonderful people have passed and you think its okay to say that. ken was a big brother to all of us at applebess and brittany was dating his best friend. if you wanna feel bad for his wife pray for his wife and family to get thru this rough time

    • Katie provost

      No she was not his wife she was a good friend of his. People need to stop sticking their nose where it doesn’t belong have some respect!!!

      “What’s new black guy out spending money on other women” that’s what was ignorant!!!! Besides was u with him? People are allowed to have friends maybe the wife didn’t want to hang out.

        That’s part of what’s wrong with the world today. Wife at home with kids. Kids in home sleeping hoping to see their father in the morning. If you think that it’s ok for daddy to be our partying with another woman at 2am, you just answered the question. No logic, no common sense and no respect for others, for women and people in general.

      Just so you know… she works as a server/bartender at applebees and was taking this gentleman home that works with her… I used to be a server at a restaurant… cooks don’t make a crap ton of money… I took 2 males home every night after work at 1-2am… and I had a husband and kid home… Thanks for being sympathetic to the fact that my friend who was a beautiful person inside and out is no longer with us today here in the physical world. Her family and his family are both devistated. Don’t talk if you don’t know.

    • Jamilahja

      You need to check your spelling while you’re trying to call someone else out! What you are talking is as dumb as you probably are. You don’t know the victims or the situation. Talking Sh behind your keyboard! Coward MF!

    • Terry

      You need to check your own spelling. You speak as dumb as you likely are. You don’t know the victims nor the situation.
      Black guy? Hat on backward? Look in his eyes? Man get a life!

    Jerry- you sir are an ignorant asshole. Ken had a wife and owned his own company and worked his ass off to support his family. Brittney was not even 22 yet and she was dating kens best friend and she was also very good friends w ken and she worked her ass off everyday . They were both amazing people . Did they probably do something’s wrong in their lives ya probably but hey are we all perfect no but ican tell you first hand I’ve seen them both demonstrate more dedication to work and being a good person and friend than you have in your entire being. Especially if you can sit here and judge someone who can no longer stand up for themselves . You are pathetic and one day you will be judged in the greatest court of all so I suggest you learn to have a little more love in your heart and consideration then anger and resentment.

    Ken was at our home laughing and joking on New Year’s Day watching football with my son-in-laws.

    He was a family friend and will be greatly missed.

    I am going to focus on the good and let God judge the rest.

    Condolences to both families.

  • Jeff

    Wow what a world we live in today. Some of you guys Jerry and Phoenix in particular have no respect! And what a shame if one day an incident like this happens to you or a family member and you have to see ignorant people like yourself making comments on you or your family. Show some class, have some respect, if you have nothing nice to say keep your mouth shut! Simple as that…
