Slow down! Municipalities across Michigan see multiple crashes, pileups
LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Authorities across Michigan are urging residents to slow down following several crashes Thursday and Friday.
On Friday, US-23 was closed for several hours after a semi truck carrying 40,000 pounds of mulch overturned. Northbound US-131 was closed Friday morning in Wayland due to multiple crashes and southbound US-131 was closed in Portage due to a 10-vehicle pileup that included two semi trucks and a box truck.
Police credit drivers going too fast for road conditions in the collisions. Luckily, no major injuries were reported.
A stretch of US-131 in Alamo Township was closed down for a pileup that involved more than 20 vehicles. Officials said there have been several injuries.
A Michigan State Police trooper who was policing the crash had their vehicle damaged in the pileup. The trooper is expected to be OK.
