Southfield, MI (December 10, 2021) – A 29-year-old woman’s life was cut short after she was involved in a tragic accident on a roadway in Southfield. On Thursday afternoon, December 9, the woman was killed by a piece of scrap metal that crashed through her windshield. 

The accident happened on Nine Mile Road near the Northwestern Highway, according to reports. A pickup truck traveling east was towing a trailer full of scrap metal, according to police.  A piece of metal became loose for unknown reasons and went through the windshield of her vehicle. She was headed west at the time. 

Her vehicle then crashed and she suffered serious head trauma. She was transported from the scene to an area hospital by paramedics and was later pronounced deceased. 

Nine Mile Road was closed at Northwestern while responders worked at the scene. Authorities in Southfield continue to investigate. 

We would like to offer our sincere sympathies to the family of the deceased victim at this time.

Southfield, MI - 29-Year-Old Woman Killed When Piece of Scrap Metal Crashes Through Windshield on Nine Mile Rd near Northwestern Hwy

After a fatal car accident in Michigan, it is important that the victim’s surviving family members speak with an experienced personal injury attorney. Several important no-fault benefits are available to the deceased’s family, like survivor’s loss benefits. 

Regrettably, most insurance adjusters are either not honest about the insurance benefits that the family is qualified to receive, their calculations are wrong, or the benefits do not include everything a family is entitled to, such as burial and funeral expenses, social security benefits, replacement services, pension compensation, and disability benefits.

Data provided by the auto insurance industry itself confirms that families contacted directly by an insurance adjuster to settle a claim receive, on average, three to four times less than what they could get with an experienced car accident attorney.
