Vehicle crash results in 2 deaths

An accident that occurred on January 16, 2017 in Sterling Heights, Michigan, took two lives. The three-vehicle crash occurred at 12:30 p.m. and left significant debris at 17 Mile and Ryan.

Law enforcement investigators state that the crash occurred when a Jeep that was traveling southbound on Ryan Road ended up, for a reason that has yet to be determined, in the northbound lane. Once there, the Jeep struck a Lincoln and then collided into a white van. The man who was operating the Jeep and the woman who was driving the white van were both killed as a result of the accident. The driver of the Lincoln was transported to an area hospital for treatment for his injuries.

Law enforcement officials stated that it was not clear whether alcohol consumption, speeding or weather conditions contributed to the accident. Residents who live near the area where the accident occurred stated that vehicles are commonly observed speeding in the area, particularly on Ryan Road, which was cordoned off for several hours as police investigated what could have caused the accident. The road was reopened for traffic at around 4:00 p.m. on that Monday.

A personal injury attorney may assist individuals who have been injured in car accidents with obtaining financial compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering and medical expenses. The attorney may conduct an investigation to confirm the liable parties and reasons for the crash. Suits may be filed against drivers who were distracted or drunk as well as against vehicle manufacturers for any vehicle defect that was a contributing factor.
