MSP says the 27-year-old at-fault driver was determined to be impaired and has been lodged. A search warrant was sought for a blood draw.

The passengers in the suspect driver's car suffered minor injuries. The passenger of the car that was rear-ended has serious injuries.

"No matter the warnings that we give or the ride services that are available, including designated drivers, we still have Michiganders who choose to drive impaired. It is our hope that drivers will make a plan to avoid getting behind the wheel impaired," says MSP Lt. Shaw.

The investigation is ongoing and pends prosecutor review.
