Four Killed in Massive Detroit Freeway Pileup

At least four people are dead, including three children, in a horrific multiple-vehicle accident scene that stretches for more than a mile long along I-75 southbound, police said Thursday.

Michigan State Police Capt. Monica Yesh said the fatality number is tentative, as police continue going through vehicles. She said at least 30 vehicles were involved in the pile up near the Springwells exit in Detroit.

According to a first responder on the scene, one victim's car is shattered with the back of the car folded up over the front of the car.

    Remember, only the government can run the road system. Private enterprise simply can't handle important, complex issues like driver safety...

    "one victim's car is shattered with the back of the car folded up over the front of the car."
