2-year-old survives crash that killed 4

The other passengers were Armonie Maddox and Ervin Johnson, both 18.

WDIV, the NBC affiliate in Detroit, reports that the crash happened around 1 a.m. on eastbound I-94 near 8 Mile Road in St. Clair Shores, northeast of Detroit.

The child, who had just turned 1 on Saturday, was strapped into a vehicle seat.

A 1-year-old child who was buckled into a auto safety seat was the only survivor of a freeway crash in Harper Woods early Monday morning that killed four other people, including a Macomb County man, police said.

"Out of nowhere the vehicle came flying down the side of us, doing about 80", recalled John Wade, who helped call 911 after witnessing the crash.

Shaw said Armonie and Alesia are brother and sister.

CNN-News18 had quoted CBI sources as saying that the police may have also tried to destroy the evidence. The cops also admitted that they didn't watch the closed circuit television (CCTV) footage carefully.

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.

Alesias son, who turned 1 on Saturday, is the only survivor and was the only person with a seatbelt on, although police say he was improperly belted into his seat.

The adults all were between 18 and 25 years old.

Wade believed the auto seat was the only thing that saved the toddler's life. State police say a traffic crash reconstruction unit is investigating.

The boy was taken to a hospital for minor injuries and is set to be released to the care of his remaining family.

Speed and wet weather may have played a role in this deadly crash, but it remains under investigation.
