Backed up traffic after a crash on westbound I-94 in Van Buren County. (June 8, 2015)

PAW PAW, Mich. (WOOD) — Westbound I-94 has reopened in Van Buren County after a crash, although construction work in the area is still slowing traffic.

The crash happened around 11:30 a.m. Monday in the westbound lanes of the highway near exit 56, which is the Decatur exit. Traffic had to be re-routed off the highway for about two hours while crews worked to clear the scene.

According to Michigan State Police, traffic was slowing due to construction in the area when a semi-truck rear-ended another semi-truck. A car was also involved when it swerved to the right to avoid the semi-truck.

The driver of the semi-truck that rear-ended the lead truck was flown to Bronson Hospital by Air Care with serious injuries.
