SOUTHFIELD, MI — Michigan State Police are investigating a fatal crash that took place Tuesday night involving a bus and a car, which may have happened as the result of a street race. Troopers were dispatched to northbound M-39, north of Eight Mile Road around 11:50 p.m. for reports of a car blocking the middle lane before it was later reported the car was on fire in the road.
The Southfield Fire Department arrived on scene first and was able to extinguish the fire before pulling a body out of the car.
An initial investigation revealed the car was traveling at a high rate of speed when it slammed into the back of a SMART bus. The driver of the bus told police he saw multiple cars traveling a high speed just prior to his bus being hit and that he believed the cars were racing down the freeway.
The identity of the driver has not been confirmed and an autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday.
