Icy I-96 section causes multiple accidents

CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- A windswept section of I-96 near 28th Street was the scene of multiple accidents Wednesday morning.

Five of them, a jacknifed semi-trailer, an overturned van, and three other vehicles that slid off the highway were visibile within a half mile stretch.

The area was exposed to high winds that created an icy glaze on a highway where other sections were dry and driveable at normal speeds.

It's not known if anyone was injured in the accidents that required westbound traffic to detour at 28th Street while the truck was towed away.
