DETROIT – Nearly 30,000 people lost power in Metro Detroit after intense rain and winds swept through the area Sunday.
Southbound I-75 in Southgate looked like a swamp after the heavy rains. Northbound I-75 at Allen Road was closed for hours, as were the southbound lanes on the Lodge Freeway.
Several collisions occurred, including a fatal crash in Harper Woods.
Police said the driver in that crash was going too fast for the road conditions and lost control of the vehicle.
The car hit a tree and trapped the driver inside the burning vehicle.
