Weather, Speed, and Tailgating all Factors in Multi-Car Crash on I-94
The crash happened at about 8:00 p.m. near the Oakland Drive exit, according to Portage police. It started when a pickup truck lost control and struck the median barrier. Two other vehicles side-swiped each other trying to avoid the truck. Then, a semi came to a stop to try and avoid all of it, but was then struck from behind by another vehicle. A final pickup truck lost control while also trying to avoid the chaos, left the road, and rolled over.
Three people suffered minor injuries.
At roughly 9:30 p.m. the highways reopened, according to MDOT.
