One person is dead and five others injured following a vehicle crash involving an Ypsilanti school bus on eastbound I-94 Tuesday morning.
The accident occurred around 10:15 a.m. on eastbound I-94 at US-23 in Pittsfield Township.
Pittsfield Township Fire Department, Ann Arbor Fire Department and Michigan State Police responded to the scene after a SUV rear-ended a disabled Ypsilanti school bus at the eastbound I-94 exit.
The bus was being provided tow assistance for a flat tire. There were no students on the bus at the time, according to the Ypsilanti School District.
Police report that the driver of the vehicle, including three infants inside, were trapped underneath the school bus.
The three children were transported to the University of Michigan Mott Children's Hospital in serious condition. Two people were transported to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in critical condition, and the tow truck driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Chehadi Nader, 42, of Ypsilanti, was reportedly at the rear of the bus when the accident happened.
A previous version of this article stated that there were also two additional 'walking wounded' injuries caused from the crash. According to an update from the Michigan State Police, that was incorrect.
There are currently two adults and three children still in critical condition.
