Allen Park Police Detective Jim Thorburn said Jesse Sanchez-Condash, 24, was driving her Ford Fusion between 60 to 70 mph east on Outer Drive about 8 p.m. when she lost control, crossed the freeway and collided into a steal support beam, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Along with the beam, Sanchez-Condash hit a gas pump and two other vehicles, including a Dodge Challenger with a man sitting inside who was taken to the hospital with a minor neck injury. Paramedics arrived at the gas station where Sanchez-Condash was pronounced dead at the scene.
Thorburn also told the Free Press police believe Sanchez-Condash could have struck several parked vehicles in Dearborn Heights before the crash at the gas station, and that Heights police reports are consistent with the time frame.
Allen Park police are investigating the crash and have obtained security video footage along with witness statements. A toxicology screening will take a couple weeks to conduct in order to determine if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
According to her Facebook page, Sanchez-Condash worked in sales at Jack Demmer Ford, as a team leader at 1800CarShow and shift leader at Detroit Trading.
Messages of support and posts with memories filled Facebook honoring Sanchez-Condash.
