Police arrest 1 after speeding Camaro loses control, flips over on Lodge Freeway
DETROIT (FOX 2) - The driver of a Chevrolet Camaro that was speeding on the Lodge Freeway lost control Friday morning, flipped the car, and slid several hundred feet Friday morning.
Michigan State Police had attempted a traffic stop on the speeding car when it crashed. The driver then fled the scene before being arrested a short while later.
The incident happened on M-10 around 3:35 a.m. when a Metro South trooper was sitting in the southbound service lane near Meyer.
Around that time, the officer's rear-facing radar alerted a vehicle was traveling at 80 mph.
Once the suspect vehicle, a white Chevy Camaro, passed the officer, they turned on their emergency lights and attempted a traffic stop.
According to Michigan State Police on Twitter, the driver entered the expressway and lost control of the car.
The driver, identified as a 29-year-old Detroit man, was taken into custody shortly after fleeing the scene on foot.
