Last night a crash at a construction site west of Chelsea left westbound I-94 backed up for miles. Eastbound I-94 at that point is currently under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board after four fatalities this summer, three of which, like this crash, involved semis and construction zones.
From the Ann Arbor News, Fiery crash on I-94 leaves 4 with injuries:
About 3 p.m., a car westbound on I-94 hit a semi-truck, Smith said. The truck swerved and rammed into a barricade truck that was protecting a construction crew working on scaffolding under the railroad bridge. The truck’s gas tank was severed, igniting it into a fireball.
The Chelsea School District issued an announcement this morning that M-DOT intended to close westbound I-94 at Chelsea, beginning at 9:15am, for crash scene cleanup and investigation. No confirming reports are available yet.
