(WJBK) -

A blue SUV was speeding down Seven Mile Road near Hubbell Street in Detroit when it slammed into the back of a truck stopped at an intersection, police say. The impact sent the truck into a median and the SUV flew through the air, rolling over and sideswiped another vehicle going through the intersection. The SUV came to a stop when it crashed on top of a red car.

You can see the SUV sitting on top of the red car in video obtained by Fox 2 crews.

In all, four vehicles and ten people were involved in the crash. Five of those people were children and four of those children were taken to the hospital. The children are aged one, two, three and four years old.

Their injuries are all superficial, meaning minor cuts, scrapes and bruises, so all are expected to be okay.

The driver of the SUV is suspected to have been drunk at the time of the collision. He was arrested at the scene.

    Ford Motor Co. on Sunday unveiled a new Escort sedan designed in China for global sale at a Beijing auto show that highlighted the growing influence of Chinese tastes on the industry.
