11 teens hurt, 3 critical in Macomb Twp. crash just after finishing exams
MACOMB TWP., Mich. (WJBK) - Three teens were left in critical condition Monday after an accident involving 11 teens total in Macomb Township, who had all just left school after finishing exams.
Police responded to the scene around 10:40 a.m. at 21 Mile Road and Creekside for an accident involving three vehicles, according to Macomb Township deputies.
Traveling westbound on 21 Mile, a silver Saturn Ion carrying five people between the ages of 15 and 17 stopped to turn left onto Creekside when the vehicle was rear-ended by another driver -- a purple Chevy Silverado carrying six people between the ages of 15 and 16.
Four occupants were in the cab of the Silverado and two were in the open bed.

The two people in the open bed were ejected from the vehicle.
Some passengers in the vehicles involved were wearing seatbelts and others were not, police say.
