According to witnesses, a gray Pontiac rear-ended a minivan just before 1:30 a.m. Monday. Both vehicles left the roadway and struck the median wall.
The woman driving the minivan was pronounced dead on the scene. Her name has not been released pending the notification of family. The driver of the Pontiac was transported to a local hospital and is in critical condition. Eastbound I-96 has since reopened.
Police are investigating the crash but say it does not appear alcohol was a factor. The woman however was not wearing her seatbelt.
