Michigan woman killed in car accident

Authorities are investigating a fatal crash that they claim may have been the result of an intoxicated driver. A preliminary investigation also concluded that distracted driving, including the use of a cellphone, may have also been a significant factor in the crash.

According to police, the 21-year-old driver of a Ford Ranger was traveling on Interstate 94 when he allegedly reached down to pick up his cellphone. Traffic had slowed because of an accident further up the road. When the man looked up and saw that traffic had stopped, he slammed on his brakes and swerved left into an oncoming minivan carrying eight people. One of the occupants of the minivan was pronounced dead at the scene. The other seven were injured in the accident and transported to a local hospital for treatment.

Witnesses to the accident reported that the male driver of the Ford Ranger had been driving erratically before the crash, and claimed that he threw something from the vehicle immediately following the crash. Police later found drug paraphernalia on the scene, and the driver tested positive for a controlled substance. Further, police found that the vehicle had been stolen earlier that day, and the driver was wanted on a warrant for fraud.

Following the accident, authorities closed down most of I-94 to tow the vehicles and assist the injured. The driver of the Ford Ranger also struck another vehicle as a result of the crash. Although the driver of the third vehicle was uninjured, he reported damages to his vehicle amounting to $3,000.
