Default Accident on THE LOOP last night

Was driving home from school last night, about 8:30pm, and right where M59 west hits the loop, there were about six sheriffs blocking it off and where M59 east hits the loop. From what I could see, one car was smashed up and the other was on it's side. Can't seem to find anything on the local news websites so wondering if anybody here has heard anything about it

It's where Woodward starts and ends in Pontiac. South Woodward loops around and connects back up with North Woodward. I guess that would be the best way to explain it

To hell with the street signs, it's called widetrack.

And Pine Knob will always be Pine Knob.

So was it a car going the wrong way? Over the years I've seen a few pass by going the wrong way. Always wakes you up.
