Detroit, MI (September 20, 2023) – On September 20, officers with the Detroit Police Department received a collision alert and a report of injuries at the scene of a multiple-vehicle accident on Interstate 696.

Right around 9:00 a.m. on the eastbound side of the highway near Orchard Lake Road, an accident occurred, as reported by the Detroit Police Department and the Michigan Department of Transportation. Reports of a two-car crash with many casualties prompted officials to close all lanes, save the left one, and call for backup from local authorities.

It is unclear how many persons were brought to the hospital, but paramedics quickly assessed and treated all injured parties. The authorities are still looking into the crash and will provide further details when they become available.

Highway Accident Injuries in Detroit

Detroit, MI - Car Accident, Injuries on I-696 at Orchard LakeEvery day, hundreds of thousands of automobiles clog the streets of Detroit and other large cities in Michigan, creating hazardous driving conditions. It’s possible that people are late for work because they are listening to the radio, taking a phone call, or texting. Automobile accidents are often fatal in such weather.

It’s hardly surprising that there are so many automobile accidents in Michigan, with roughly seven million vehicles on the road yearly. Detroit’s roads and highways, like those in other major cities worldwide, have heavy traffic during the morning and evening rush hours on weekdays. Furthermore, when there is a catastrophic accident involving many motor vehicles, the media generally focuses on numerous topics, like drunk driving, inattentive driving, and so on.

Some motorists continue to ignore Michigan’s ban on texting while driving despite the state’s efforts to discourage the practice. Victims who are involved in car accidents suffer not only bodily injuries but also severe psychological trauma. In the worst-case scenario, people die, and their loved ones are left to deal with the fallout. Over 300,000 were reported to the Michigan State Police in the Detroit region in a single year, with over 54,000 of them occurring in Wayne County alone.

If you’ve been hurt in a vehicle accident and are trying to make ends meet while you recuperate, you may find the personal injury restrictions in Michigan to be a major inconvenience. Insurance companies are more inclined to provide victims with the lowest possible settlement if they do not have legal counsel.
