Driver of truck that crashed into Warren bus stop suspected of drinking, driving, police say
6 injured, 4 of them pinned under truck
WARREN, Mich. – The driver of a pickup truck that crashed into a Warren bus stop Wednesday is suspected of drinking and driving, police said.
Investigators said the pickup driver lost control and smashed into the bus stop near 12 Mile Road and Van Dyke.
Six people were injured in the crash, and four of them were pinned underneath the truck.
“He spun out of control, and he jumped the curb and wiped out the whole bus stop,” Clarence Wilson said.
Wilson and his friend were standing outside of the bus shelter when the crash happened. He said some of the people sitting at the bus stop flew through the glass when the truck crashed into it.
Witnesses said the driver of the truck, a 55-year-old Roseville man, didn’t appear to care about the people trapped under his truck. Wilson said the man went to a nearby Subway and used the bathroom after the crash.
