Troy, MI – Troy police officers are investigating a two car crash that left one driver dead yesterday at approximately 2:15 p.m. on eastbound Big Beaver east of John R. Killed was 74 year old Diana Zaccagnini of Macomb Township.

Several witnesses report seeing a cream colored 2008 Mercury Mountaineer, traveling westbound on Big Beaver, cross over the median and strike two trees before entering the eastbound lanes. The Mountaineer then struck a maroon 2011 Ford Taurus, the car driven by Zaccagnini, that was traveling eastbound.

The Mountaineer was driven by a 53 year old male from Troy. The cause of the crash is currently under investigation.

Both drivers sustained serious injuries from the crash and were transported by Alliance Mobile Health to Troy Beaumont Hospital. Zaccagnini died from the injuries sustained in the crash.

There were no other passengers in either vehicle at the time of the crash, and no other vehicles involved. Both drivers were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash.

All lanes of eastbound Big Beaver were closed at John R for approximately two hours and 15 minutes while officers from the South Oakland County Crash Investigation Team (SOCCIT) conducted the investigation.

Witnesses are asked to contact the Troy Police Department at 248.524.3477.
