Greenville teen fighting rare toxic shock syndrome


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- The family of a Greenville teenager wants others to be aware of the rare disease that almost took their daughter's life.

Rylie Whitten, 15, has one of the worst cases of toxic shock syndrome that doctors in West Michigan have ever seen. It's a condition that affects primarily young women -- but because it starts as a staph infection, anyone can get it.

For the Whitten family, it happened just after the holidays on Jan. 4.  Rylie was anxious to get back to school. Her father, Nate, says she didn't feel well, which was unusual.  "She's young, healthy, never had any medical problems whatsoever."

Woman charged in boy's death 'felt the truck rise'


STANTON, Mich. (WZZM) -- As 4-year-old Talos Bills, accompanied by his 16-year-old cousin, rode a red scooter in a crosswalk east across M-57 in downtown Greenville, a woman stopped at the red light watched in horror as a 2012 Chevy Silverado ran over the boy and headed north on M-91, according to testimony Monday.

"I watched the little boy pass my car and then I watched the driver come around very tight,'' Erin Molly Rogers testified through tears. "I watched the little boy hit first and then he kind of flipped. We watched him go under and the tire went over him.''
