Police are investigating a six car accident that has killed at least three people in Van Buren Township.

The accident is being called a violent rear-end collision. 

Police have not identified any of the victims, but say a 10-year-old boy in one of the cars was injured. That boy's parent was killed in the accident.

7 Action News has learned that parent was Robert Dulin III. We are also learning that Dulin put his body in front of his 10-year-old son Shane when it became clear that they were going to crash.

Shane was taken to Mott Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor. We are told his injuries are minor.
