Michigan Auto Accidents
The state of Michigan definitely has its share of serious auto accidents all across the state. In 2022, the state had nearly 300,000 crashes.
Michigan is ranked number 12 in the United States for fatal car accidents averaging around 1,100 a year. Michigan's significant population, harsh winters, and icy road conditions contribute to a greater risk of an auto accident.
Two Related Vehicle Crashes in Michigan Leave One Vehicle Split in Half
What is so crazy about these two vehicle accidents that are connected is, that the vehicle shown in the picture above is not even the vehicle that was split in half. If you have ever driven on Michigan's I-696 in the Detroit area you know that it can seem like a NASCAR race at times with too many people driving way too fast all at the same time.
These two accidents didn't happen during rush hour traffic on I-696 but around 1:50 a.m. this past Sunday morning. There were not that many vehicles on the road at that time when there was a serious two-car crash with one of the cars being hit moments later by a third vehicle.
According to WXYZ, a Chevy Equinox slammed into a Dodge Caliber causing it to roll over. The driver of the Equinox left his vehicle to check on the driver of the Caliber and that is when a Dodge Challenger who was driving over 100 mph cut the Equinox in half.
Several people were seriously injured during the two crashes. The 19-year-old driver of the Challenger is in the hospital with a serious head injury. The two passengers in that vehicle are also listed in serious condition. The driver of the Caliber only received a minor injury while the driver of the Equinox was uninjured. Good thing he didn't stay in his car or that would have been another story when that Challenger cut it in half.
