DETROIT – Officials say a 2-year-old child was killed in a violent crash Wednesday on Southfield Freeway.
Michigan State Police had northbound lanes on Southfield Freeway shut down near Outer Drive as they investigated a two-vehicle collision that sent a minivan into the barricade. The collision sent a 2-year-old girl passenger through the window of the minivan.
Officials say the 2-year-old child was riding in the backseat of the vehicle alongside a 2-month-old baby, who was in a car seat. The 2-year-old was reportedly not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
The driver of the second vehicle stayed at the scene to talk to authorities, officials said.
It is unclear what, if any, charges the drivers may face.
