ANN ARBOR – Members of the Ann Arbor Fire Department responded to the scene of a vehicle crash on Monday at the Traver Village Shopping Center on the city’s northside.

The single-car collision happened at around 4:37 p.m. and the vehicle had two occupants at the time of the crash.

“It could have been a lot worse and not only could a pedestrian have been involved, but had they not hit the pillar, they would have gone right into one of the stores,” said Ann Arbor Fire Chief Mike Kennedy. “They had some pretty good velocity behind them.

“Fortunately, just the single vehicle and the crash was related to the occupants of the vehicle.”
