Fatal crash shuts down WB 96 during morning drive

By  | 

OAKLAND CO., Mich. (WILX) -- Commuters were detoured Thursday morning at westbound I-96 and Milford Road due to a deadly crash.

State Police are reporting that a semi truck started to have engine problems on the highway near Kent Lake Road and the driver pulled the truck over mostly onto the shoulder, but not all the way.

Then a box truck struck the rear of the semi truck, killing the driver of the box truck. Police say the driver had to be cut out of the truck.

The westbound lanes of the interstate will be closed for a few more hours so the accident investigation team can continue their work.
