Did they have anything to do with it? A fiery multi-vehicle pileup on snowy roads that involved 193 vehicles brought Interstate 94 near Battle Creek to a screeching halt in both directions Friday, killing at least one person and injuring a number of others.
Weather (h/t Kitty) Michigan State Police now say 193 vehicles were involved, including dozens of semi-trucks. Lt. David Wood said that around 50 vehicles remained on the roadway Saturday morning.
MSP reports at least one semi was carrying fireworks. They also classified it as a “hazardous material situation” because of another truck carrying formic acid, which is mainly used as a preservative.
