This was another preventable crash in the district. There are a lot of drivers are driving too fast and driving impaired. As a driver we are all responsible for our own safety and the safety of other drivers and passengers. Again, totally preventable.— MSP Metro Detroit (@mspmetrodet) June 14, 2021
