2 days, 2 DDOT accidents, one dead

Recommended Posts

A head-on crash Thursday morning closed Gratiot Av for hours, when a 23 year old plowed into a DDOT bus and died at the scene.  The driver veered across at least 4 lanes of traffic (low level at 6:30am), and struck bus #1410 operating the 34--Gratiot route in the curb lane.  The 2014 Xcelsior XD40 had significant damage to the front under the driver, however the 2003 Ford Escape was complete toast.  Speed limit is around 35mph in the area, and Detroit Police are checking the deceased for drugs/alcohol.

On Wednesday, a bus operating Route 40--Russell apparently had mechanical problems, causing a minor crash through a fence.  Supposedly steering problems.  No coach number given.
