Fox 2 Detroit reported on March 12 that a 22-year-old man, who was driving a Chevrolet Impala at a high rate of speed, went over the median and struck a Ford Expedition head-on. The news report also stated that the Ford Expedition landed sideways along a fence of the Detroit City Airport after the collision. Due to the severe impact, the engine from one of the vehicles was flung to the other side of the street.
According to the police officers, the speed limit on Conner Street is 35mph, but some complaints revealed that it was often used for drag racing, an activity that has resulted in injuries and even some fatalities.
Three people – a 30-year-old woman, her 7-year-old son, and her 11-year-old daughter – were trapped inside the Expedition and were rescued by the witnesses. They were reported to be in temporary serious condition. The Chevy Impala driver was ejected from the vehicle and was said to be in critical condition due to severe head injuries.
