A multi-vehicle car accident occurred earlier this month in Detroit that resulted in the death of one individual, and injury to two other motorists.
Witness statements said a westbound vehicle lost control near Mt. Elliot while trying to avoid a distressed vehicle that was in the left lane. The vehicle then crashed into the rear of another vehicle on the roadway’s right shoulder. The vehicle on the right shoulder then hit the driver of a distressed car who was apparently out of his car asking for help. The victim, whose name was withheld, was rushed to Detroit Receiving Hospital where he died. Two others were brought to area hospitals to receive treatment for minor injuries, including an off-duty Detroit Police Sergeant who there to give assistance.
Investigations are ongoing and alcohol was not a factor in the crash, police said.
