The Detroit News - - Front Page - BY JAMES DAVID DICK­SON AND MARK HICKS The Detroit News

When au­thor­i­ties sur­veyed the scene of a deadly ve­hi­cle crash Mon­day morn­ing on In­ter­state 94, they found four bod­ies amid the tan­gled mass of metal.

In­side, they found a 1 year old, strapped in a car seat in the back, alive.

Michi­gan State Po­lice said a 2006 Buick SUV was trav­el­ing fast in the left lane when its driver “lost con­trol while pass­ing other traf­fic,” cross­ing three lanes of on­com­ing traf­fic be­fore strik­ing a bridge about 1:05 a.m.

The driver of the 2006 Buick SUV was Do­real Rodgers, 20, of Detroit. Her front seat pas­sen­ger was Ale­sia Mad­dox, 20, also of Detroit. Rear pas­sen­gers were Ar­monie Mad­dox, 18, of Detroit and brother of Ale­sia; and Ervin John­son, 18, of East­pointe.

None of the adults wore seat belts. All were killed in­stantly, au­thor­i­ties said.

The 1-year-old, the son of Ale­sia Mad­dox, was buck­led in and had only mi­nor in­juries.

State po­lice said “no ev­i­dence of al­co­hol or nar­cotics” emerged in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Sup­port­ers have launched a GoFundMe page to raise money for fu­neral ex­penses.

“We are in need of your sup­port to raise $30,000 to bury our loved ones and see them to rest,” read a post on the page.

Some vis­i­tors to the pressed their grief.

“R.I.P an­gels,” one user wrote. “My heart is bro­ken.”
