I'm very glad that to read this update. I live in Christian Hlls sub- about 1 block from where the accident was. I heard the sirens while at home. I was getting ready to drive to Southfield, and turned West on Avon and saw the accident. My only prayer was that I hope everyone survived. It looked bad. Glad to know that the people survived.

I agree with Carol, I'm just glad to read that no-one was seriously injured.
