More information in the fatal Kroger grocery crash

We recently shared a story in this space about an accident in which the semi driver was killed. At that time there was a suspicion that the truck may have been cut-off by another vehicle. Now police say they have identified the other driver whom they believe is responsible for the fatal truck accident.

On July 9, a truck driver was killed after crashing into the rear wall of a Kroger grocery store. Police now say that the man was forced off the road after being struck by a 19-year-old woman from the Detroit area.

According to a Kroger spokesperson, another truck driver who was in the building was injured by the crash, sustaining a broken collar bone and a broken ankle. No other employees or customers were hurt in the crash.

According the authorities, the woman who hit the truck was on her way to Detroit for a birthday party. Witnesses say that not only was she exceeding speeds of over 100 m.p.h, but she was also racing another friend to get to the restaurant first. The woman was driving a Toyota Camry, and when she moved her car to switch to the center lane, she lost control and struck the truck.

After she hit the truck, she started to weave around and back and forth. Police have begun what is expected to be an extensive investigation into the accident. They have acquired blood samples and other forms of evidence, but say it will be at least three months before the results are turned to the investigators.

As a result of the crash into the building, a large fire was started at the store. It took many and Grosse Pointe and St. Clair Shores first-responders hours to put out the fire. They were also responsible for clearing oil and diesel fuel from the crash site.
