Alcohol, drugs could be factors in deadly crash on Ryan Road in Sterling Heights
25-year-old man killed in head-on collision
STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich – A 25-year-old man was killed early Tuesday morning when a vehicle crossed the center line of Ryan Road and struck another vehicle head-on.
Sterling Heights police said the crash happened just before 1 a.m. on Ryan Road between 16 Mile and 17 Mile roads.
Two other people were injured, but those injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. The 25-year-old man who was killed was a passenger in one of the vehicles.
Police said alcohol and drugs are believed to be a contributing factor in this crash.
Police said it's still unclear who passed the center line. A 24-year-old Sterling Heights man was driving a Chrysler Pacifica with the 25-year-old man in the passenger seat. The Pacifica collided head-on with a Ford F-150, which was driven by a 27-year-old Troy man.
The 24-year-old man suffered minor injuries, as did the 27-year-old. Both could face charges, police said, because the 27-year-old is being investigated for alcohol and the 24-year-old is being investigated for drugs. The 27-year-old is being held in jail for now.
