HARTFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Michigan State Police say a 29-vehicle pileup forced them to shut down a section of westbound I-94 in Van Buren County Friday.
Troopers say the crash happened during heavy lake-effect snow around 9:20 a.m. Friday at mile marker 45 just south of Hartford. MSP say the pileup involved 17 semi-trucks and 12 other vehicles.
It’s unclear how many people are injured, but MSP says at least one person was pinned inside his vehicle for a short time. The Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office helped at the scene.
Westbound I-94 closed for several hours Friday, but has since reopened.
MSP are also cautioning drivers to slow down and give other vehicles more space when conditions are snowy.
