- We have breaking news tonight at 10:00. Copter 4 is live over the scene of a fatal crash on I-76. Brighton police say that an 11-year-old died in that crash and that alcohol is suspected as a factor. It happened around 7:20 tonight. Four people were inside the car, traveling east. Police say the vehicle drifted off the road, rolled in the median, and ended up in the westbound lanes. That child was pronounced dead at the hospital. The driver, a 27-year-old woman, has been arrested.

Both directions of traffic were closed for more than an hour. A single eastbound lane reopened in the last 30 minutes, but you can see a lot of drivers were still detouring off the highway just minutes ago.
