GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A vehicle caught fire after crashing into a guard rail on a Kent County highway Saturday morning.

It happened around 10:54 a.m. Saturday on eastbound I-96 at the exit to northbound US-131.

Authorities said the vehicle was attempting to take the exit when it hit wet pavement and slid into the guard rail. All of the people of the vehicle got out after the crash, and it caught fire.

One person suffered minor injuries in the crash that were unrelated to the fire.

The entrance ramp to northbound US-131 was closed following the crash, but has since reopened.
