Police were on scene for several hours, reconstructing the accident at the intersection of Cherry Hill Road and Inkster Road.

Dearborn Heights officers received assistance from Taylor and inkster police as well.

A total of 5 cars were smashed up. It’s not clear if it was all connected or possibly even 2 separate accidents.
