Around 12:33 a.m. on Oct. 26, 2019 police said officers responded to the intersection of Nolte Road and Michigan Avenue.

Investigators said Black was rushed to a hospital and two people in the second were pronounced dead at the scene.

A 40-year-old female and a 15-year-old boy were killed in the crash.
