WARREN — A 40-year-old woman died after she was struck on Interstate 696 at Hoover Road early Sept. 21 following a collision involving at least two vehicles.

Michigan State Police reported the crash occurred at 1:05 a.m. in eastbound traffic. According to an MSP release posted to Twitter, 911 callers reported that a vehicle was stalled in the right lane of the freeway with occupants “out of the car walking around.” A second vehicle reportedly struck the stalled car before hitting a dividing wall, Lt. Michael Shaw confirmed.

The woman was reportedly struck by one of the vehicles during the crash.

Warren Fire Commissioner Skip McAdams said Sept. 24 that paramedics arrived to assist state troopers at the scene, administering emergency medical care. The patient was reportedly unconscious with severe abdominal and lower body injuries. She was transported by the Warren Fire Department to St. John Hospital in Detroit, where she later died.

Three other people sustained minor injuries, McAdams said. All were transported to St. John Macomb-Oakland Hospital in Warren for treatment or evaluation.
