Michigan assistant basketball coach Saddi Washington is OK after he was involved in a rollover car accident Tuesday afternoon, after arriving back in Metro Detroit following the team’s appearance in the national-championship game Monday.
Washington and his family avoided serious injury, a Michigan spokesman said.
“Thank God,” said Tom Wywrot, associate director of media relations for the athletic department. “Everyone’s a little shaken up.”
A Van Buren Township police official said it was a single-car rollover accident, around 3 p.m., on westbound Ecorse Road between at Denton Road and the Washtenaw County Line. A police official didn't know how many people were in the car.
Michigan’s charter plane flew into Willow Run Airport in Ypsilanti after noon on Tuesday.
Washington, 43, a Lansing native, just completed his second season on John Beilein’s staff at Michigan, after 10 seasons on staff at Oakland.
