The accident took place just after 11pm Tuesday evening.
The car crashed into the side wall of the freeway and caught fire. Four people were inside and all four have been killed and transported to the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Identifying the victims is proving to be difficult because they were all burned beyond recognition. Another issue complicating the investigation is that the license plate that was being used on the vehicle did not belong to that car.
Excessive speed appears to be the cause of the accident. All lanes of the freeway at the accident site are back open.
