DETROIT (WXYZ) — Michigan State Police are investigating a traffic crash that ejected one driver from a vehicle in Detroit Saturday.

On Sept. 5 around 2:15 a.m., troopers responded to I-94 and Woodward for a one car rollover crash.

According to MSP, as troopers were traveling eastbound on I-94, they saw a vehicle driving eastbound in the westbound lanes get into a head-on crash in the westbound lanes, directly across from the original eastbound crash scene.

Eastbound I-94 was shut down for the original crash, and the man that was ejected was taken to Henry Ford Hospital with serious injuries.

The on-scene investigation has since been completed and the freeway has reopened, MSP tweeted.

The second crash in the westbound lanes was a head-on crash involving the wrong way driver and another vehicle traveling the correct direction on the freeway.

The female driver of the non-at-fault vehicle was pronounced dead on scene by Detroit Fire & Rescue personnel. The at-fault driver suffered injuries and was taken to a local hospital.

Westbound I-94 was shutdown for an investigation and has since reopened.

The investigation continues in both of these crashes, according to MSP.
