Car crash kills one, injures three others

Police suspect that the driver responsible for a fatal car crash on Troy intersection was suffering from a medical condition.

Around 5:30 in the afternoon on October 17th,  a silver Ford Escape was westbound on Wattles Street, about to make a left when it was hit by a blue Chrysler Town and Country.

The driver of the Chrysler failed to stop for a red traffic signal before crashing the Ford. All four people involved in the crash sustained notable injuries and were brought to nearby hospitals.

A 70-year-old woman, Shyamala Ramachandran, died from her injuries. Police say she was in the back seat of the Ford and wasn’t buckled up. The other three passengers are still being treated in the hospital.

The accident remains under investigation, but alcohol and drugs have been ruled out as factors in the crash.  Anyone who has any information about the accident is urged to contact police at 248-524-3477.
