Traffic

LOWELL TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A crash on I-96 near Lowell caused eastbound lanes to close Monday evening.

Authorities said the crash happened in Lowell Township around 6:25 p.m. on eastbound I-96, east of Alden Nash Avenue NE.

The Michigan State Police says one semitruck rear-ended another — one of them hauling milk. Authorities originally thought a car was involved, but said that was not the case.

One person sustained injuries that are not considered life threatening.

News 8 crews saw drivers using the shoulder to pass the crash scene. Eastbound drivers were directed to exit at the Alden Nash exit. They were also asked not to enter at Alden Nash.

The area has since reopened.
