(WXYZ) - UPDATE: First responders call I-94 crash that killed 4 'worst they've ever seen' 


All eastbound lanes of I-94 at Allard just before 8 Mile have reopened following a deadly crash.

Police tell Action News four people were killed in the accident this morning, but a baby survived. Good Samaritans stopped to rescue the child, who was still in a car seat.

"The baby was in the car seat...that was the only thing that probably... saved the baby," said crash witness John Wade as he wiped away tears.  

Police say they do not believe anyone in the vehicle was wearing a seatbelt except for the child. 

Two men and two women died in the crash ranging from 18 to 25 years old, according to police. We're told the men were ejected from the vehicle. 

The one-car crash was reported around 1 a.m. Police say the vehicle hit the wall while going under the 8 Mile overpass.

According to police, five people were traveling in a 2006 Buick SUV at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control. 

Police say the child suffered minor injuries.
