ROSEVILLE, Mich. – Roseville police are investigating a fatal car accident that killed a 16-year-old girl and left seven others injured.

The two-car accident happened at the intersection of Little Mack Avenue and 12 Mile Road in Roseville just after midnight.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 33-year-old Clinton Township woman, sustained injuries in the accident. She was arrested at the scene on suspicion of operating her vehicle while intoxicated. She is currently being held in the Roseville Police Department Jail.
