WARREN (WWJ) – An elderly woman has died in a crash involving multiple vehicles on 14 Mile Road.
According to Warren police, the accident happened just before noon Thursday, east of Ryan Road on the border of Warren and Sterling Heights.
Witnesses told investigators a 2010 Lincoln Town Car, driven by an 86-year old man with an 86-year-old woman in the passenger’s seat, sped out of the McDonald’s parking lot into traffic.
Police said the Lincoln was struck by three others vehicles that were traveling on 14 Mile Road.
Both occupants of the Lincoln were taken by EMS to a local hospital where the woman was pronounced dead. The man was injured, police said, but no one in the other vehicles was seriously hurt.
An investigation is ongoing.
The crash shut down 14 Mile Road in both directions between Ryan and Mound for a few hours, but the roadway has since reopened to traffic.
The victim’s name is being withheld pending notification of her family.
