After an ambulance left to take Tucker to a local hospital, her 20-year-old brother, Ricky, rushed off in his sister's car to meet family members at the hospital. He never made it.
According to authorities, he was killed in a crash with an SUV on his way to St. John Hospital.
According to the Detroit Free Press, investigators believe Ricky crossed over the center line, hitting the other vehicle.
The driver of the SUV suffered only minor injuries.
Sunday's deaths marked just the most recent tragedy for the Tucker family.
According to family members, Ricky Tucker fatally shot his stepfather in self-defense six months earlier.
