Ambulance, SUV Crash During Michigan Blackout

CLAYTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. – An ambulance and a vehicle collided this weekend during a blackout, according to a report.

It happened Sunday evening around 7 p.m. on the border of Clayton and Flint townships. NBC 25 News reports it saw several cars blow through the intersection while the traffic light was out.

Michigan state law requires drivers treat malfunctioning lights as a four-way stop.

“They could have had a passenger on there that was in critical condition or something. Really messed up,” resident Kayden Laqrabti told the station. “You’ve just got to watch out what you’re doing, especially when the power is out and the light is off. You can’t really see.”

It is unclear if anyone was hurt in the crash.
