DETROIT, MI – The driver of a Chrysler 300, who was traveling at a high rate of speed, was allegedly the cause of a fatal crash on the west side of Detroit this afternoon.
On Friday July 31st, 2020, at approximately 1:19 p.m., officers received a police run to the 12900 block of Dale for a possible kidnapping of an adult female by an armed known male suspect and broadcasted the description of the suspect’s vehicle which was a white Chrysler 300 to other units.
Another officer saw a vehicle matching the description of the broadcast vehicle traveling southbound on W. Outer Dr. near Plymouth Rd. at a high rate of speed. The officers activated their lights and sirens.
The suspect’s vehicle then disregarded a red light at the intersection of Plymouth and W. Outer Dr. and collided with a white 2000 Honda Odyssey, which was traveling eastbound on Plymouth Rd, being driven by a 48-year-old man. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. The 19-year-old female driver and her 21-year-old male rear passenger of the Chrysler 300 were taken into custody.
They were transported to a local hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Two other occupants, a 15-year-old girl and a 33-year-old man, are also being treated at a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detroit Police Department’s Fatal Squad Unit at 313-596-2260, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-Speak Up.
