M-6 reopens after two crashes

Westbound at M-6 is shut down at Byron Center Avenue.

BYRON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) – A section of M-6 was shut down Thursday morning after two crashes occurred about two miles apart from each other.

The first wreck, which involved four vehicles, occurred around 7:30 a.m. in the westbound lanes of the highway near Byron Center Avenue SW.

Both the westbound and eastbound lanes of the highway were shut down as a result of the wreck, according to the Michigan Department of Transportation.

An unknown number of people were taken to the hospital for treatment. Their conditions are unknown.

Another accident happened around the same time, a couple of miles away, in the eastbound lanes of M-6 near Wilson Avenue SW.

In that wreck, one vehicle left the highway, went into the median and hit an MDOT road conditions sign.

A medical helicopter was flown in to the scene as a result of that wreck, and eastbound M-6 in that location did not fully reopen until about 10:30 a.m.

24 Hour News 8 is working to get more information on both crashes.
