PORTAGE, Mich. (WOOD) - A semi-truck wrecker rear-ended a semi-truck Wednesday morning in the westbound lanes of I-94, snarling traffic east of the US-131 interchange in Portage.
The accident happened just after 10 a.m., police said. It was unclear what caused it to occur.
After hitting the semi-truck, the semi-truck wrecker went into the median. It then caught on fire, and an officer at the scene said the driver got out of the cab "in the nick of time."
Neither of the drivers were injured in the accident.
Crews are working to clean up the crash site. Only one lane of westbound I-94 is open at this time.
The bottlenecked westbound traffic was backed up for more than an hour.
