Long road ahead: I-75 overpass cleanup continues
State Police say the crash was caused by a 27-year-old Clawson man who was driving northbound on the freeway in the far left lane, lost control of his car, crossed two lanes of traffic and crashed into the side of tanker carrying 13,000 gallons of fuel. Two truck drivers suffered minor injuries.
The driver police say caused the accident, Saied Haidarian-Shahri, 27, of Clawson, could not be reached for comment Friday. Police say he was driving too fast when he lost control on a curve while heading north on I-75 around 8 p.m. Wednesday. Haidarian-Shahri crossed two lanes of traffic and struck a fuel tanker truck driven by Michael St. John, 44, of Armada, officials said.
When asked by WJBK-TV (Channel 2) if he felt sorry, Haidarian-Shahri, who just received his driver's license in May, said "nope."
"I don't think I made a mistake," said Haidarian-Shahri, according to WJBK. "I gave an official statement to the police."
Lt. Shannon Sims of the Michigan State Police Metro North Post in Oak Park said Friday the Oakland County Prosecutor's Officer will determine if there was any criminality involved. Investigators have completed their reconstruction of the accident and will compile a report for the prosecutor's review using interviews with all drivers involved, including Haidarian-Shahri, he said.

This guy needs to go to jail.
