2 Dead, 20 Hurt In Massive Crash On I-75 In Detroit

Michigan State Police Lt. Michael Shaw said two people are dead, 20 people are hurt and dozens of cars crushed in a massive crash that has closed a portion of I-75 in Detroit.

Local 4 spoke with several drivers at the scene who said they were in shock, but were able to get out of their cars safely and get off the interstate. They said white-out weather conditions made it very hard to see and the chain-reaction crash.

“I slowed down because of the weather, with the white-out, I tried to get out of the way and next thing …slammed into a truck," said one driver.

Several drivers said they tried to help others who were stuck in their cars before rescue crews got on the scene.
