By John Counts

A traffic accident on northbound U.S. 23 at M-14 was slowing traffic around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.

A Washtenaw County dispatcher said the right lane was closed as authorities cleared the accident.

There was both a flood and fog watch in effect at the time of the accident.

Joyce Williams with Huron Valley Ambulance said the call for the accident came in at 8:15 a.m. At 8:30 a.m., one person was transported to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in stable condition.

Driving to work shouldn't be like a NASCAR race.

My dad used to say, "Drive like (heck) and you'll get there faster!"

Yeah, I agree. Everybody needs to SLOW DOWN. It's like my dad used to say, "Better to arrive late than never to arrive at all".

I was literally 20 feet in front of this person when they started to spin. Going way too fast, and trying to pass in the right lane around the curve on to M14 while it's pouring rain. SLOW DOWN.
