Detroit — A car crash on Detroit's west side late Saturday night killed a 53-year-old female passenger in one of the vehicles, who was ejected from the minivan on impact, police said.

The fatal crash took place about 9:20 a.m. at Joy Road and Westwood. That's east of Evergreen.

Police say a black 2008 GMC Acadia driven east on Joy by a 58-year-old man crashed with a 2010 Chrysler Town & Country traveling south on Westwood.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office identified the victim as Roszenna Shamily. She died from multiple injuries.

A second passenger in the minivan was taken to the hospital and listed in critical condition.  

Police have made no arrests but will investigate the crash.

As of Jan. 21, the most recent numbers released, 40 people had died in car crashes in Michigan thus far in 2020. That's nine fewer than that time last year.
