Four people were killed in a crash on I-94 near Detroit Monday Nov. 13 2017

Rodgers, Alesia Maddox, 20, and Armonie Maddox, 18, were from Detroit.

Four people were killed, but a toddler survived when an SUV crashed overnight on I-94 near St. Clair Shores. The child passenger suffered minor injuries.

A 2-year-old child who was buckled into a auto safety seat was the only survivor of a freeway crash in suburban Detroit early Monday that killed four other people, police said.

The driver of the 2006 Buick SUV was Doreal Rodgers, 20, of Detroit.

Police say that the 2006 Buick SUV was traveling in the left lane and passing other vehicles at a high speed when the driver lost control, crossed three lanes of traffic and slammed into a bridge at 1 a.m. on November 13.

She said Alesia, Armonie and Ervin all lived with her in her home in Detroit.

Alesias son, who turned 1 on Saturday, is the only survivor and was the only person with a seatbelt on, although police say he was improperly belted into his seat.

"The baby was in the vehicle seat", a crash witness told WXYZ. State police said none of them were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. "That was the only thing that probably. saved the baby".

"It wasn't the right age, it wasn't the right fit, it wasn't the right anything and still saved this kid's life", Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw said of the auto seat that was holding a 1-year-old. "Just the amount of carnage I guess involved in this crash, it kind of set a lot of people back", Shaw said. State police say a vehicle accident recreation unit is researching.
