WARREN (WWJ) – A crash on the eastbound I-696 service drive at Bunert Road in Warren killed a 60-year-old woman and left her 25-year-old passenger injured.

Police said the victim ran a red light at Bunert and was broadsided by a van that had the right-of-way on the service drive.

Michael Pluff of Roseville works in a building in that area and said it’s a dangerous intersection.
