Car Accident On Detroit’s East Side Kills 2-Year-Old

DETROIT (WWJ) – An overnight crash in Detroit kills a young boy and leaves his sister critically injured. The accident happened on Hoover and Pinewood on the city’s east side early Sunday evening.

WWJ’s Mike Campbell reports that authorities are working on the theory that a suspected drunk driver lost control and slammed into a car carrying a mother and her children. A two-year-old boy was killed and his eight-year-old sister was critically injured. The mother of the two children wasn’t injured.

The 62-year-old suspected drunk driver from Shelby Twp. was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. He’s currently in police custody. Authorities are still waiting on preliminary breath test results for that driver.

    Another day, another death on Detroit roads. Apparently drunk drivers are illiterate and can’t read or comprehend the news

    Okay, so, again, the drunk driver has minor injuries and is under police custody – my plea to the courts – take away his license, and charge him with murder – he knew what he was doing when he got behind the wheel – how many times do we have to read about these idiots that don’t seem to get it – STOP DRINKING AND DRIVING!!! If you want to drink, call a cab to get where you need to be!!! My thoughts and prayers are with the family that lost this little one, and with the 8 year old recovering in the hospital right now.
