Three people were killed after two vehicles crashed on I-94 in southeast Detroit early in the morning.
At around 1:50 AM, a Chevrolet Camaro was reported to be driving at high speed when it collided with another vehicle.
Three passengers of the cars were taken to hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
The Michigan State Police were originally dispatched to eastbound I-94 and Outer Drive.
While driving, the Camaro collided with the rear end of a Mercury SUV heading east. Inside the Camaro was a 39-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman.
Mercury was driving a 61-year-old passenger, whose identity remains unknown at this time.
The three were transferred to Ascension Hospital before they were pronounced dead.
The highway at Chalmers and Outer Drive was closed until around 5 am.
Police believe that excessive speed and alcohol could be factors contributing to the accident.
The medical examiner’s report is pending and the investigation is still ongoing.
