Third person dies in multi-vehicle crash in Highland Park

HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. (WJBK) -

Police say a multi-vehicle crash along Woodward Ave. in Highland Park has left three people dead and one critically injured.

Highland Park police say they tried to stop a vehicle around 3:30 a.m. Friday and the driver fled southbound. Police say they didn't pursue the vehicle, since road conditions were slippery amid heavy rains.

The vehicle collided with another a medical transport vehicle traveling in the northbound lanes, killing two people and injuring a woman who was in the back. She was rushed to a local hospital where she later died from her injuries, FOX 2's Roop Raj reports.

Names of those involved weren't immediately released.
