The Michigan State Police and the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office have confirmed the death of a woman killed in a three-vehicle crash in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They identified her as 30-year-old Whitney Carol Cozine, whose death calls for the intervention of a car accident lawyer.
In a report, the MSP said the fatal victim encountered the crash, which claimed her life on Sunday night, May 24. Police said it occurred at precisely 9:25 p.m. on Highway 23, and left one person dead, and two others hospitalized with serious conditions.
Preliminary reports showed the crash kicked off when a vehicle traveling through the north traffic lanes of U.S. 23 lost control and crossed the center divider. The car veered into the southbound lanes of travel, and onto the path of two oncoming vehicles. The three vehicles collided before either of the drivers could swerve to avoid a collision.
The wrong way vehicle then rolled over and struck a guardrail barrier, leaving the car severely dented. The operator of the vehicle, identified as 30-year-old Alexander Hunter, sustained serious injuries in the wreck.
Whitney Cozine, who was traveling in one of the vehicles suffered fatal injuries, and medics pronounced her dead at the scene. A third victim, who police said was a passenger in one of the three cars, also ended up in critical condition. Emergency responders transported the injured parties to a St. Joseph Mercy Hospital for treatment.
Following the crash, traffic officers delayed traffic on Highway 23 for about six hours. Activities on the freeway resumed at about 3:23 a.m. on Monday.
Victims of traffic collisions, or their families in fatal cases, should endeavor to get in touch with a car accident lawyer as soon as possible.
