Mother of 2 killed in crash on I-96, suspect’s license was suspended


 A mother of two was killed after her car was rear-ended by a driver whose license had been suspended multiple times. According to Michigan State Police, the 29-year-old victim was traveling along the I-96 entrance ramp from westbound Davison around 11:25 p.m. with her two children — ages 6 and 7 — in their Saturn Ion.

A Chevrolet Traverse, driven by a 25-year-old male, rear-ended the Ion, causing significant damage to the vehicle and killing the mother in the process. The 25-year-old male, fled the scene but was eventually found by police at a nearby hospital. He allegedly told police he ran to a gas station after the crash and got a ride to the hospital. The suspect’s identity has not been released by police, but MSP says the man has been convicted multiple times for driving on a suspended license and has five current suspensions. There were also a pair of local warrants out for his arrest, according to police.

The boys were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment for minor injuries and are now being cared for by family. An investigation is ongoing and MSP will send their findings to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office for consideration of charges.
