SUV crash in Detroit leaves 1 dead, 3 injured
A 20-year-old woman was killed early Tuesday after being ejected from a fast-moving SUV that crashed into a house on Detroit’s northwest side.
The incident happened about 1:15 a.m. near the intersection of Evergreen and Curtis, said Officer Dan Donakowski of the Detroit Police Department.
“A 1996 Ford Explorer was traveling at a high rate of speed, when the driver lost control and hit a residence in the 18000 block of Evergreen,” Donakowski said. “The vehicle then rolled over and the female rear passenger was ejected.”
Wayne County Medical Examiners identified the victim as Cierra Nicole Bean. An autopsy revealed she was killed by multiple blunt-force injuries. She was pronounced dead at the scene, Donakowski said.
Three others in the vehicle — the 21-year-old male driver, and men ages 18 and 20 — also were injured in the crash, although their conditions were not immediately known Tuesday morning.
“At this point, it was unclear whether this was drag racing or if the (driver of the Explorer) was cut off by another vehicle,” Donakowski said.
