Detroit, MI (December 4, 2023) - Multiple individuals were hospitalized in an accident on I-96 in Detroit, and authorities suspect alcohol played a part in the crash, per the latest details released on Monday.

Officials said the collision occurred at about 3:30 a.m. in the morning on Thursday close to Telegraph Road. One car was rear-ended by another traveling westward due to excessive speed, according to the police. Firefighters from the Detroit Fire Department used the Jaws of Life to free the driver of the second vehicle, and there were major injuries to the passenger of the car that was rear-ended. The first driver, a 27-year-old from Southfield, was allegedly intoxicated when the accident occurred, prompting the pursuit of a warrant to collect blood samples. They are being held in custody by the police at this time. The passengers of that vehicle were also hurt, though they are expected to recover. No further details were released, but an investigation is ongoing.

The injured victims and their families are in our thoughts at this time.
