Detroit, MI (November 20, 2021) – A three-vehicle crash turned fatal on Saturday, November 20 on an interstate in Detroit. The wreck happened at approximately 1:20 a.m., according to reports. 

The incident took place when a stolen GMC Terrain was stalled in the westbound lanes of Interstate 94. The GMC was blocking the right lane when a semi-truck hauling a dovetail stopped to avoid striking the vehicle. 

A Jeep Wrangler was unable to stop when it approached the two vehicles and struck the semi-truck, pushing it into the GMC. The driver of the Jeep, identified as a 34-year-old male from Ecorse, was transported from the scene with life-threatening injuries. 

He was later pronounced deceased at a local area hospital. His name has not currently been reported.

Witnesses told police officers that they saw two occupants of the GMC flee the scene after the collision. Authorities in Detroit continue to investigate the circumstances of the wreck. 

Our thoughts are with everyone involved. We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased at this time.

Detroit, MI - Three-Vehicle Collision Turns Fatal, Takes 1 Life on I-94 near Lonyo St

Any traffic accident can be an inconvenience, but a severe crash is life-altering. Of the thousands of vehicle accidents that take place on Michigan roads each year, many only result in property damage. However, far too many end up resulting in severe personal injury or even the loss of life. Even the car wrecks that seem minor can result in serious bodily injuries, emotional and mental turmoil, and financial burdens for victims. 

If you or a loved one of yours has sustained injuries in an auto crash, or your life has been directly impacted by the loss of a family member in a deadly accident, you may be eligible to collect financial compensation. It is important that you do not agree to a settlement, sign any papers, or even speak to your insurance company until you talk to a Michigan car crash attorney. 

Wrongful Death Lawyers in Detroit

While most people are probably able to work out the details of an auto crash and return to their normal life fairly quickly, others are not so fortunate. Being injured in a car accident not only affects your ability to function normally in your day-to-day life, but it can also divert the course of your entire existence. 

Major injuries that are often suffered in serious car accidents include broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries, to name a few. These require multiple doctor’s visits, extensive healing time, and sometimes even routine surgeries. Physical and emotional therapy may also be on the list of things that stem from suffering a serious injury in an accident. These bills add up all while you may be forced to spend time off of work. 

Not only are physical, emotional, and mental problems often brought on by auto accidents, your ability to provide for your family may also be negatively impacted, as well as your ability to engage with your friends and live your life how you see fit. A personal injury attorney in Detroit is your best bet to be able to recover successfully–especially if the wreck that caused your injuries was caused by negligence. 

The only way an auto accident can get worse is if someone you love loses their life. Under this horrible circumstance, a wrongful death lawyer in Detroit will know exactly what to do to help you collect financial compensation for the death of your loved one. Financial compensation can help cover some or all of the associated costs with your loved one’s passing and make it easier for you to focus on your family and emotional health during this potentially heart-wrenching time.
