MARSHALL TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A tractor trailer loaded with car parts rear-ended a Calhoun County plow truck on southbound I-69 late Wednesday night, causing traffic delays and damage to both vehicles.

It happened at 9:35 p.m. near J Dr N.  Deputies say the plow truck spun out of control as a result of the collision and came to rest in the median.  It had been scraping snow and spreading salt on the highway at the time of the crash.

The driver of the tractor trailer, who was identified as a 44-year-old man from Portage, was found to be at fault for the accident, and was cited for driving too fast for the conditions.

Nobody was injured in the collision.  Both vehicles had to be towed from the scene, causing SB I-69 to be temporarily shut down to one lane for approximately three hours.  It was also completely shut down for approximately 30 minutes.
