Crashes could slow commute on eastbound I-94

By Cindy Heflin

A pair of crashes could hamper eastbound commuters heading into Ann Arbor this morning.

A couple of crashes have been reported on eastbound I-94 near Kalmbach Road near Chelsea, a dispatcher with the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office said just before 8 a.m.

The right lane was still blocked about 9:30 a.m., a dispatcher said. No information was immediately available about possible injuries or how many cars were involved.

My husband was the person in the blue focus that was overturned. Other than a few scratches and being sore today he is fine. Just wanted to let the one commentory know.

Hmm no update on this yet? When I drove through there this morning just shortly after it happened, I saw what looked to be a blue ford (maybe a focus?) on its roof in the south side ditch. Also noticed two other vehicles prior to the blue ford on the north side ditch/median. I traveled at approximately 75MPH after the incident and didn't notice any police or ambulance en-route until I came upon the 94E/14 split near Weber's exit. I'm sure that the local Fire Department / EMS responded before MSP and HVA (I hope). At any rate, I was hoping to hear that everyone was uninjured or had at the very most minor injuries. It looked pretty bad when I passed through. I felt that should stop and help out, but after scanning the situation there were quite a few people assisting and I would have only been in the way. However, I still feel like I should have stopped. Next time I won't second guess myself. To those involved, I wish you all the best.
