1 dead after SUV hits ice truck, sending it into house

One person is dead after a collision between sport utility vehicle and an ice truck on the west side of Detroit Friday.

A passenger of the Chevrolet Trailblazer died after crashing into the ice truck, sending it careening into an abandoned house at West Chicago and Asbury Park. 

The driver of the truck is in critical condition with injuries to both legs. The driver who was in the Trailblazer is also critically injured.

Police say the driver of the Trailblazer was going east on West Chicago at a high rate of speed and ended up in the path of the westbound ice truck.

A witness said the Trailblazer turned in front of the ice truck leading to the collision, as it tried to make the turn onto Asbury Park.
