ROCHESTER HILLS (WWJ) — A drunk driving accident in Rochester Hills claimed the life of a grandmother on Saturday morning.
Oakland County Sheriff investigators said that the 62-year-old woman was driving on Rochester Rd. north of Tienken Saturday morning when the driver of a pickup truck crossed the center line and crashed into her head-on.
The woman died at Crittendon Hospital. Her 10-year-old step-grandson who was in the car was taken to Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital and is expected to be alright.
Investigators said that the truck driver was drunk. The 25-year-old Rochester man driving a Ford F-150 crossed over the center line and hit the grandmother’s Saturn on Rochester Rd. near Mead.
