Smoke could be seen billowing from the scene of a fiery crash and explosion involving a tanker truck.
Emergency repairs are being made to a busy freeway interchange in Detroit.
Lt. Mike Shaw says that several people were in a car traveling along westbound I-94 near Mt. Elliott St. in Detroit around 1:30 a.m. Monday morning when shots rang out and the driver was struck.
Police pursued the driver as he went onto the freeway and continued to flee at 90 MPH before he rear-ended a mini-van.
Witnesses said that the vehicle lost control and overturned several times around 11 a.m. before landing on a fence at the bottom of a snowy embankment.
At around 6:30 a.m., a pick up truck hit the rear of the DDOT bus which was stopped in the left lane on I-94 near Cadieux. Moments later, a van struck both the bus and the truck.
State police say they have reconstructed last month’s massive pileup on I-94 in southwestern Michigan and are determining whether anybody will face criminal charges.
Authorities say a Warren man was killed in a rollover crash on I-94 in Macomb County that might have been fueled by alcohol.
Police say the driver lost control of his semi-truck and hit the median wall, causing the rig to roll over.
“People were driving too fast and following too closely on an icy freeway during a white-out.”
