1 dead in crash on John R, north of Big Beaver, in Troy
Troy — A 27-year-old Warren woman was killed in a multi-vehicle crash during rush hour Tuesday near Interstate 75 and Big Beaver, police said.
Officials said it does not appear alcohol nor drugs were factors at this time.
The crash happened at about 4:16 p.m. on John R, north of Big Beaver, according to authorities. Police closed John R for about four hours.
A preliminary investigation found that a silver 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee was traveling south on John R when it swerved into the northbound lanes and crashed into a gray 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee that was heading north, they said. The silver Jeep rolled and the gray SUV was struck by another vehicle. A fourth vehicle rear-ended the third car, police said.
The Warren woman was a front-seat passenger in the silver Jeep, police said. The Jeep's driver, a 28-year-old Eastpointe woman, had serious injuries and was taken to a hospital. Troy firefighters had to extricate them from the vehicle.
Police said the driver of the gray Jeep also was taken to a hospital for serious injuries.
The other drivers involved in the crash were not injured, officials said.
