Troopers found that a Dodge Caravan was traveling north in the southbound lanes on Interstate 75 when it collided head-on with a Cadillac sports utility vehicle. The Cadillac driver, identified as a 26-year-old male, was seriously injured and transported to Beaumont Trenton Hospital via ambulance. 

The driver of the Caravan, a female, age 37, was trapped inside her vehicle. Firefighters from the Berlin Township Volunteer Fire Department extracted her from the car. She was then life-flighted to the University of Michigan Hospital with injuries deemed life-threatening. 

The Dundee Police Department was observed on the scene along with Michigan State Police, Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, and Monroe County Ambulance. Northbound and southbound lanes of I-75 were closed for several hours while authorities investigated the circumstances of the wreck.
