Semi-truck collides into Detroit apartment, DTE employee dies after electrocution, gifted car stolen

No serious injuries after semi-truck crashes into apartment in Detroit

A semi-truck heavily impacted an apartment building and damaged five parked cars early Monday morning. The driver is also missing after witnesses say he ran from the scene. The tenant at the apartment that was damaged was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

MONDAY NEWS HIT - The driver of a semi-truck is missing after he lost control of his vehicle, struck multiple parked cars, and collided with an apartment building wall. 

No one was seriously injured in the crash, but the structure near Greenfield and Grove in west Detroit sustained heavy damage.

A tenant in the apartment complex was taken to a hospital as a precaution, however.

The crash happened around 2:30 a.m. Monday. Multiple police and fire units were on the scene by the time the crash was reported.

It's unclear what caused the semi-truck to lose control. It struck five parked vehicles before colliding with the corner of the apartment building. 

One resident who spoke with FOX 2 said that had the parked vehicles not slowed the truck's speed, the impact could have been a lot worse.

Witnesses at the incident didn't get a good look at the driver before he fled, only describing him as wearing a white jumpsuit. 

No other information was given.

Michigan proposes quarantining some firewood

In an effort to prevent unwanted diseases and pests from coming into Michigan, the state's agricultural department is proposing a quarantine protocol on external firewood before it enters the state.

Insects like the Asian long-horned beetle, the mountain pine beetle, and the spotted lanternfly, which are not native to the state but are capable of damaging crops, trees, and vegetation, are known to be introduced to Michigan through firewood coming from out of state. "These infestations can be devastating and pose a serious threat to Michigan’s agriculture, natural resources and the environment," said Mike Philip, MDARD's pest management division director.

Under new proposed guidelines, the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development by heat-treating wood to a temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least an hour. Kiln-dried lumber and wood chips smaller than an inch would be exempt. As would logs or wood shipped from out-of-state sources that directly go to mills.

A public comment period on the policy is now open until Nov. 19, 2021. Members of the public interested in providing feedback on this proposed quarantine can submit their comments to Mike Bryan, MDARD Export and Compliance Specialist by emailing [email protected]

DTE employee dies after being electrocuted

A utility worker in Brighton Township was fatally electrocuted Sunday morning when he came into contact with an energized cable and sustained injuries. 

Michigan State Police that responded to the incident were at the scene in Livingston County around 10:30 a.m. The DTE worker, a 41-year-old man from South Lyon, was in the field at the time of the death. 

"He, along with thousands of DTE employees, held a commitment to caring for our customers and communities, and we view him as a hero. We are reaching out to his family, and we ask for consideration and privacy at this time of profound sadness and grieving. We are sending our full love and support to his loved ones, and all those whose lives he touched," read a statement from DTE.

Troopers were assisted on scene by Livingston County EMS, Brighton Fire Department, Howell Fire Department, and Livingston County Sheriff Department.

Gifted car from Detroit R&B singer stolen

Haiti kidnapping: US seeks release of 17 missionaries abducted by gang

U.S. officials are working with Haitian authorities to try to secure the release of 12 adults and five children with a U.S.-based missionary group who were abducted over the weekend by a gang notorious for killings, kidnappings and extortion.

The group was snatched by the 400 Mawozo gang, which controls the Croix-des-Bouquets area east of the capital of Port-au-Prince, police inspector Frantz Champagne told The Associated Press on Sunday. The abduction happened Saturday in the community of Ganthier, which lies in the gang's area. It was blamed for the kidnapping of five priests and two nuns earlier this year.

As authorities sought the release of the 16 Americans and one Canadian with the Ohio-based Christian Aid Ministries, local unions and other organizations expected to launch a strike Monday to protest Haiti’s worsening lack of security.

Semi-truck plows into stopped traffic causing deadly highway pileup

M-6 reopens 3 days after deadly crash near Wilson Avenue

Update 5/26: MDOT says all westbound lanes of M-6 have reopened.

More information has been released surrounding the fatal crash Sunday. 

The semi-truck driver has been identified as a 48-year-old Charles Fletcher from Standish, and the occupant of the car was identified as 58-year-old Lawrence Green from Kentwood. 

The crash remains under investigation. The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office said the driver of the semi-truck hit a barrier and flipped. According to the Michigan Department of Transportation, the under carriage of the truck did not have lights on it, and a witness said the driver of the car slammed into the semi. Both vehicles caught fire and burned in the crash.  

MDOT said the freeway will remain closed for bridge repair until 5 p.m. this Thursday.  

On Sunday, the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office responded to a fatal crash on M-6 just east of 8th Avenue in Jamestown Township of Ottawa County.  A semi-truck turned over and caught fire around 5:30 a.m.   

Ottawa County Sheriff's Office said when officers arrived, both the semi-truck and another vehicle, which struck the semi-truck, were engulfed in flames. 

First responders were unable to get to the victims. Once the fire was extinguished, officers located one occupant in each of the vehicles, who were both pronounced dead at the scene. 

Their information is being withheld at this time pending notification of next of kin. 

Ottawa County Sheriff's Office initial investigation indicates that the semi-truck drifted off the south side of the roadway before correcting and then overturning. The trailer of the semi-truck was then struck by a westbound vehicle. 

"The westbound M-6 in this area is going to be closed indefinitely at this point," said Lou Hunt, Ottawa County Director of Emergency Management via email. "There will be significant clean-up efforts that will take time."

The Michigan Department of Transportation is currently conducting a safety inspection on the bridge that crosses over Rush Creek to ensure that it is safe to handle traffic. 

Westbound M-6 will remain closed for bridge inspection between Kenowa and 8th Avenue until Tuesday at 9 a.m.

The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office ask that anyone that may have witnessed the incident to contact the Sheriff's Office at 616-738-4000, Ottawa County Central Dispatch at 1-800-249-0911 or Silent Observer at 1-877-88-SILENT.
