UPDATE: A press release from the Macomb County Sheriff's Office identifies the deceased driver in the fatal crash as Robert Veneri, 62, of Grosse Pointe.

MACOMB TOWNSHIP – At approximately 2 p.m. on April 9, Macomb County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to the area of 23 Mile and Card roads in Macomb Township for a fatal crash involving two vehicles.

A press release from the Sheriff’s Office states that a cement truck was traveling eastbound on 23 Mile and a gray Cadillac was traveling westbound on 23 Mile. The vehicles collided head-on just west of Card Road, killing the male driver of the Cadillac.

The Sheriff’s Crash Investigation Unit was on scene and investigating. Both drivers were reportedly wearing their seat belts, and drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor at this time.

The release did not indicate the status of the cement truck driver.

During the investigation, 23 Mile Road was closed in both directions between Par Drive and Card Road.
