Authorities have identified four people killed when the SUV they were in struck a bridge on a Detroit-area freeway.

Three of the four people killed in the crash were members of the same family, according to a GoFundMe set up to help pay funeral expenses.

The AP and Free-Press report the Buick SUV was driving at high speeds in Harper Woods when the driver tried to pass another auto, lost control, careened across the lanes, and ended up striking a bridge.

A toddler did survive the crash.

The child, who had just turned 1 on Saturday, was strapped into a auto seat.

Alesia Maddox was the front-seat passenger.

State police said a preliminary investigation revealed the 2006 Buick SUV was traveling in the left lane at a high rate of speed passing other traffic when the driver lost control. Rodgers, Alesia Maddox and Armonie Maddox were Detroit residents.

The adults all were between 18 and 25 years old. Police say the four who kicked the bucket weren't wearing safety belts.

The eastbound stretch of I-94 was closed for six hours as police investigated the crash.

First responders found two males ejected from the vehicle and two females inside when they arrived at the scene of the wreck on a slick portion of the I-94 near 8 Mile Road in Harper Woods, in southeastern Detroit.

"Every couple weeks there are sirens going down there".

"Car just flew past us, doing 80". "The other issue is that onramp right there, people don't merge well".
