Huge pileup snarls traffic on snowy Michigan highway

JACKSON, Mich. - Authorities say dozens of vehicles crashed in snowy conditions along westbound Interstate 94 in southern Michigan, temporarily closing the freeway and causing minor injuries to three people.

The multi-vehicle pileup Friday morning involving cars, semi-trucks and other vehicles snarled traffic through Jackson County, about 65 miles (105 kilometres) west of Detroit.

Jackson County Undersheriff Christopher Kuhl says an estimated 35 to 45 vehicles were involved. The sheriff's office said the freeway was reopened about 1 p.m. Friday.

The injured were taken to a hospital.

The sheriff's office, Michigan State Police and other officers were responding. The area's state police post didn't immediately have information to release about the crash. The Associated Press left a message seeking an update from the sheriff.
