Detroit, MI (September 14, 2023) – Multiple cars collided at a local intersection on Thursday morning, September 14, closing several lanes in the area.
After receiving reports from dispatchers, the Detroit Police Department sent a number of units to the scene. According to the Michigan Department of Transportation in the Macomb County area, at least two or three drivers were involved in the crash, which ultimately caused a rollover and the closure of most lanes at the intersection of 21 Mile Road and Card Road.
At about 6:50 a.m., Detroit police and Michigan State Police officers arrived at the scene to begin their investigation. It is unknown how many individuals were hurt; however, Detroit-area EMTs also responded to assess the victims.
As they wrap up their interviews with potential witnesses, DPD investigators are pressing forward with their inquiry. No additional details were provided to the public in the meantime.
The injured victims and their families are in our thoughts. We hope for their fast and full recovery.
Multi-Vehicle Crashes in Michigan
Managing the aftermath of a car crash in Michigan may be stressful and challenging, but there are some simple actions you can take to preserve your legal rights.
As a first step, motorists in Michigan should know that if their collision costs more than $1,000, they are required to submit a police report. The police report will detail what happened, who saw it, and which insurance companies are involved.
And if you’ve been hurt in an accident, get medical attention right soon, even if you think your wounds aren’t serious. Even minor injuries may have a severe impact on the victim’s quality of life if it takes hours or days for them to show symptoms.
Those who have been hurt in an accident and want to prove that the accident was responsible for their ailments should start maintaining meticulous records as soon as they notice any damage or related symptoms. If you notice any worsening of your disease or sustain any injuries after beginning treatment, you should schedule time with your doctor. Keep track of how often the injury returns, how much it costs, how much pain you’re in, and whether your treatment plan has altered in the weeks after the incident.
Remember that seeing your primary care physician often, in addition to engaging in physical and occupational therapy, is crucial to making a complete recovery from an accident. Your ability to make a claim and pursue legal action depends on your willingness to participate in the treatment plan prescribed by your doctor. Insurance adjusters in Michigan sometimes tell people who have been injured in accidents that they are not entitled to benefits or payment if they refuse medical treatment or repeatedly put off seeing a doctor.
