Speeding Was a Factor in Fatal Detroit Car Accident

August 19, 2013

Speed is one of the leading contributing factors to fatal Michigan Car Accidents today. In fact, speeding is involved in roughly 30 percent of all motor vehicle collisions resulting in death in the state.

Recently, speed played a direct roll in a collision that claimed three lives in the Detroit area this weekend. According to a story published by The Detroit Free Press, the incident happened at around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday morning at the Lodge and Rosa Parks Boulevard.

Reports indicate a 2003 Chevy Monte Carlo sedan was speeding northbound along the road when it accidentally collided with a 2006 Toyota Corolla carrying four passengers. The impact caused the Corolla to roll several times, killing three of the occupants who were properly restrained at the time of the crash.

One passenger survived the crash and was rushed to a local trauma center in order to receive further treatment. A passenger in the Monte Carlo was also injured and taken to a local hospital for injuries.

An investigation into the crash is continuing and the driver of the Monte Carlo may face charges pending its outcome.

The Michigan Personal Injury Attorneys with Michigan Injury Lawyers recognize how difficult the loss of a loved one due to an unforeseen accident can be. That's why the firm would like to send their deepest sympathies to the families of those who were killed in this most recent tragic crash.
