All three people inside the truck died. A passenger in the girlfriend's car was also killed.

Police tell Fox 2 the boyfriend drove off and transported his passenger to Detroit Receiving Hospital before returning to the scene. He is now in police custody. The girlfriend who was running from him in the first place is in critical condition.
