According to the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s office, the accident occurred at Five Mile Road and Levan. Apparently, an 80-year-old defrocked priest from Livonia was driving westbound on the road when his vehicle veered out of his lane, crossed the median, and hit a vehicle coming from the opposite direction.
The driver of the other vehicle was identified as a 67-year-old woman from Redford, and the passenger, her 88-year-old mother from Livonia, was pronounced dead at the scene. Both drivers of the two vehicles were taken to the hospital, but they both died later of their injuries.
The 67-year-old driver of the second vehicle was taking her mother back to an assisted living home in Livonia.
Several other vehicles were involved in the crash, and the authorities mentioned that some of the occupants sustained minor injuries.
