Police: Man dies in single-vehicle crash on west side
An unidentified man died in a single-vehicle car crash on Detroit's west side early Tuesday morning, police said.
Dontae Freeman, a spokesman for the Detroit Police Department, said the crash took place just before 5 a.m. on the 7200 block of Warwick, which is just north of Warren and west of the Southfield Freeway.
The driver lost control of his light gray Chevy Malibu and hit a tree, at which point the Malibu "burst into flames," Freeman said.
Medics arrived, but the man was dead at the scene. Police are investigating the crash and working to identify the victim.
