1 dead, 2 injured as SUV crashes into bus stop on Detroit's east side

A driver behind the wheel of an SUV had a medical emergency, crashing into a bus stop on Detroit's east side Friday.

The 69-year-old driver is dead in what Detroit police are calling a freak accident which also left two people injured at Bringard and Kelly at 2 p.m. afternoon.

The man driving a red Jeep Liberty was going west on Kelly when he suffered some type of medical emergency, crashed into the bus stop and hit a tree. 

A woman was struck inside the bus stop and is in critical condition at St. John's Hospital. A teen boy was also in the area and suffered an injury to his leg. 

Witness Maurice Perkins helped pull debris off the woman who was struck inside the bus stop. Perkins told FOX 2 that it looked as if the driver of the Jeep had suffered a seizure. 

Police Capt. Keeth Williams said the driver died from his injuries from the crash, not from his medical issue.
