A Mid-Michigan man was killed last Friday when another man crashed into him head-on after fleeing from police.

“It’s very sad to hear that somebody has lost their life. From what I hear, he was very well liked in his community,” said Rick Jones, spokesperson for the Michigan State Police.

The crash claimed the life of 84-year-old George Ramos and happened on Friday, May 18.

Jones said a 27-year-old Lansing man, now identified as Doran Duncan, was running from police at the time of the accident. He said witnesses report Duncan reached excessive speeds before slamming into Ramos’ car at the M-13 overpass at I-69 in Shiawassee County.

“There was a call on 911 that a passerby had seen a white Cadillac, going what they deemed to be about 100 miles per hour, going southbound. But there was no police involved in a chase of this individual. He was basically on his own,” Jones said.

Duncan has been released from the hospital and taken into custody.

According to the arrest warrant obtained by TV5, investigators believe the white Cadillac was stolen. Duncan is facing a long list of criminal charges including:

  • Homicide, felony murder.
  • Carrying concealed weapons.
  • Possession of firearms by a felon.
  • Felony firearms possession.
  • Larceny over $1,000
  • Habitual offender, 2nd notice

Jones said the unfortunate chain of events that led to the fatal crash started in Saginaw County when the Duncan and a woman in the car got into an argument.

“The call was that the female had shot several rounds at the male and they had left and were southbound heading into Shiawassee County from Saginaw County,” Jones said.

The white Cadillac was stopped by a Shiawassee County sheriff’s deputy at M-13 and Copas Road 14 minutes after the call came in. The woman got out of the car and was held at gunpoint by the lone deputy.

Duncan managed to drive away as the deputy called for backup. He got into the accident four minutes later.

MSP said law enforcement in Saginaw County is handling the case of shots fired by the woman. It is unclear if she is in police custody or if she will face any criminal charges for her alleged role in the incident.
