A teen was killed and three other motorists were left with serious injuries following a Detroit Car Accident last week. Reports indicate the crash happened at approximately 3:20 p.m. last Monday, May 13, near the corner of Michigan Avenue and American Drive in the suburb of Dearborn.

According to an article from ABC 7 News, the victim was in a Ford Escort stopped at a traffic signal along Michigan Avenue. While waiting for a light to change to green, the Escort was hit from behind by a SMART bus. The impact of the collision forced the Escort to hit a pickup truck, which was pushed off the road and into a row of trees and bushes along the median.

The crash left the 16-year-old driver of the Escort dead, while the driver of the pickup and two passengers in the Escort were injured. Paramedics took each of the victims to a local hospital to receive treatment.

An ongoing investigation is being conducted by both SMART and the Dearborn Police Department.
