3 Separate Accidents Leave 2 Dead, Several Injured
CANTON (WWJ) – Ford Road remains closed, between Ridge and Napier Road, as police investigate an accident. Investigators say a vehicle being driven by a 27-year old Canton woman was traveling eastbound on Ford Road.
Witnesses say the vehicle crossed over into the westbound lane and was struck head-on by a semi-tractor being driven by a 61-year old male. The impact of the collision pushed the passenger vehicle back into the eastbound lane where it was then struck by a car being driven by a 26-year old Garden City woman.
The 27-year old female driver was airlifted to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The 26-year old driver was taken to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor.
The driver of the semi-truck was treated at the scene.
