Driver Injured in Warren, MI, 18-wheeler Accident on I-696

Warren, MI -- May 3, 2017, one driver was injured as the result of an accident where an 18-wheeler overturned onto a car on I-696.

Authorities from Warren emergency departments rushed out to the accident scene in the afternoon hours of Wednesday. They say the incident took place on the transfer ramp from eastbound I-696 to northbound Mound Road.

According to investigators, a man was driving a 2016 Chevy Impala along the transfer ramp. As he neared the 11 Mile Road overpass, an 18-wheeler next to him began to tip over. The driver reportedly tried to avoid it, but couldn't do so in time. The trailer of the vehicle crushed the car.

The driver was able to get beneath his steering wheel before the trailer fell, and the body of the car stopped the trailer before it reached him. When emergency personnel arrived on the scene, they found him trapped inside his vehicle in stable condition.

After some time, emergency crews were able to lift the trailer and extract the driver of the Chevy from the car. He was then taken to William Beaumont Hospital for treatment of his injuries. The 18-wheeler driver was not injured.

At this time, police have not determined what caused the accident. Their investigations continue.
