Charges Pending in Lyon Township Drunk Driving Crash
Charges are currently pending in a drunk driving collision that occurred Friday night in Lyon Township. According to police officials in the area, the the multi-car accident occurred just after 11 p.m. on Friday night on eastbound lanes of Interstate 96.
Just west of Milford Road, a suspected drunk driver hit a guardrail on the side of the road causing the vehicle to come to a stop while in the road.
A second vehicle traveling eastbound on the road then swerved to avoid the parked car and stuck another vehicle as a result. When police officials arrived at the scene, it was determined that the driver of the disabled car was intoxicated.
The 57-year-old male Flint resident started to act out and was not cooperating with officials on the scene. Paramedics later transported the man to Providence Hospital by ambulance where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries. Police have stated that further charges regarding the accident are pending until a full investigation is completed.
