I75 at Clark Street
DETROIT -

Police say they're dealing with dozens of weather-related vehicle crashes around the state as a major storm hitting the Midwest brings snow to Michigan.

  • In Detroit, southbound I-75 was closed at Clark Street because of jack-knifed semi. It reopened at noon.
  • In Lansing, police say Friday morning they've responded to 12 traffic accidents and eight requests for assistance from motorists. Police say all appear to be weather-related.
  • In West Michigan, The Holland Sentinel reports a semi crashed in Holland and an ambulance en route to a call became briefly stuck in the snow in Allegan County.
  • MLive.com reports about a dozen minor crashes in Saginaw County on Friday morning. Other crashes happened in Midland County.

Fresh snow and icy roads made driving treacherous. Plows are on the road across the state. And some flights were delayed or canceled due to weather.
