Police say three men were involved in the early morning, single-car crash. The driver of the vehicle lost control of the car, went up an embankment, and slammed into a bridge on Interstate 75 near Seven Mile Road. Officials believe speed was a factor in the crash, according to WJBK.
When emergency crews arrived, it was too late to save the life of the driver.
A passenger who was in the back seat survived the crash, but suffered substantial injuries and is currently in critical condition at a nearby hospital. According to WJBK, the third man was able to escape from the wrecked car and flee the scene of the accident.
