All six people are current or former state employees in the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services or the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.

The introduction of ride-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft hasn't had any impact on the number of fatalities related to drunken driving, a newly published study finds.
