LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Legislation in Lansing would take away driver's licenses from students repeatedly absent from school.

Democratic Rep. Andy Schor of Lansing introduced the bill last week to combat the problem of truancy. He says driving is a privilege and there's no bigger incentive for most teens than being able to drive.

The legislation would compel judges to notify the secretary of state of cases of truancy. The secretary of state would have to suspend the license of a juvenile found by a circuit court to be willfully and repeatedly absent from schools for six months.

In cases where a juvenile hasn't yet been issued a license, he or she would be denied a license.

Michigan law requires students to be in school until age 18.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Officials say enough venison for about 234,000 meals has been donated to local food banks by Ohio deer hunters during the 2013 hunting season.

The wildlife division of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry say hunters donated about 58,500 pounds of meat from 1,170 white-tailed deer. One processed deer amounts to about 50 pounds of venison and 200 meals.

The wildlife division and the farmers and hunters group help with processing costs. Hunters who want to donate their deer aren't required to pay for the processing as long as the program has funds available.

Deer meat donations will be accepted through the close of deer-archery season, which ends Feb. 2.

PAINESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — State troopers in northeast Ohio say multiple crashes involving up to 40 vehicles have shut down the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90 east of Cleveland.

The accidents have closed an 11-mile stretch of I-90 near the city of Painesville. That's about 30 miles east of downtown Cleveland.

Troopers say there aren't any serious injuries in the crashes that began before noon.

The State Highway Patrol says it expects the eastbound lanes will remain closed through much of Tuesday afternoon. Troopers say snow and ice are making driving conditions hazardous in that area of Lake County.

Interstate 90 links Cleveland with Erie, Pa., and Buffalo, N.Y.

FREMONT, Ohio (AP) — The State Highway Patrol is investigating what led up to a wrong-way crash that killed two people in northern Ohio.

The crash happened Monday night on State Route 20 in Fremont.

Troopers say a car driven by 61-year-old Charles Starks of Fremont was going the wrong way when it struck a pickup truck driven by 57-year-old Evelyn Hunt of Fremont.

The patrol says both drivers were killed and that Hunt's 15-year-old grandson was injured.

Evelyn Hunt's husband tells The News-Messenger in Fremont that his wife and grandson were out Christmas shopping when the crash occurred.
