It's a crash that has devastated families. Friday afternoon Daemon Maniaci, 48, of Westland was behind the wheel of a Ford Ranger pickup truck. He was speeding when he ran a red light at the intersection of Telegraph and Ford. He plowed into a green Honda Accord driven by Adnan Berisha, 19. The teenager died instantly. Last year, Adnan was a senior at Annapolis High School. He was well known for his accomplishments on the wrestling mat.

Also killed in the crash, Markel Jackson-Willis, 18, who was in the front passenger seat. His cousin, William Willis, 21, was riding in the back. Emergency crews used the jaws of life to pull him from the wreckage; he's listed in serious condition at Henry Ford Hospital.

The driver who caused the terrible accident also died. It's believed he was fleeing the scene of a hit and run. He has a long history of traffic offenses.

Funeral arrangements are pending but donations for Jackson-Willis's funeral are being accepted at any 5th Third Bank. We're also told Annapolis High School is accepting donations for the families.
