A man is dead after a crash that happened just before 11:00 p.m. on northbound Gratiot Avenue just south of 10 Mile Road on Wednesday, June 8th, 2016.

The female drunk driver of a van rear-ended the older man’s car. The man was rushed to St. John Hospital where he later died. The woman was also taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

The at-fault female driver smelled of ‘booze’ and failed a field sobriety test, according to police.

The investigation into the crash is on-going. Charges are pending.
