DETROIT (WXYZ) — Detroit police confirm that a 62-year-old man and a 53-year-old woman were killed when the car they were riding in was in the wrong place at the wrong time Tuesday night. The inciden happened on Seven Mile Road and Coyle on the west side.

The driver of the car that crashed ran off, but was arrested within the hour with a tip to police. Officers are working to identify the drivers of the other two cars.

Cell phone video shows the mangled mess right after the crash.
