Wixom police say the crash call came in around 7:45 a.m. The driver lost control and went through multiple light poles and trees in front of the strip mall.

"25 mph is the posted speed limit, and she was going well above that speed," according to officers.

The collision closed roads for about four hours as police and fire crews investigated and cleaned the scene at Pontiac Trail.

The driver sustained injuries, the officer wrote. No word on the driver's condition as of yet.
