PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- A distracted driver crossed the median and crashed into oncoming traffic Thursday evening on US-131 near Post Dr., according to authorities.

The wrong-way driver was behind the wheel of a pickup truck, investigators say, heading south on the freeway. Something distracted him, and he crossed the median and entered the northbound lanes.

He hit one vehicle, whose driver was also hospitalized. Investigators on the scene told WZZM 13 that several other fender-benders resulted as other drivers tried avoiding the wrong-way crash.
