Is the Detroit Fire Department covering up for Deputy Chief Robert Shinske, who previously was suspended for driving his city-issued SUV to a bar?
When Detroit firefighters arrived to a massive fire from a tanker explosion near downtown on I-75 this weekend, there was little they could do but wait. And wait. And wait.
On Detroit’s west side, just six blocks from where the 1967 riot broke out, a battered car is wedged into the corner of a partially collapsed two-story commercial building on Linwood, buried by piles of bricks and concrete.
Then came a sound that cut through the relative silence of a scene that should’ve been more chaotic than it actually was.
The accident occurred at the intersection of E. Robinwood and Joseph Campau at 1:28 p.m.
As police cordoned off the scene of a fatal motorcycle-car collision Wednesday evening, something unusual started happening at the intersection.
