One dead, two injured in crash at I-94 and Pierce Road near Chelsea
One person was killed and two others were injured in a crash Wednesday night on the on-ramp from Pierce Road to westbound Interstate 94 near Chelsea, Jim Payeur, Chelsea Area Fire Authority chief, said.
The one-car crash occurred about 9:30 p.m., Payeur said. One person was pronounced dead at the scene, and two people were taken by Huron Valley Ambulance to the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor, he said.
State police were still at the scene of the accident investigating about 11 p.m.
He could not provide any information about the accident victims or about what might have caused the crash, but he said two other crashes occurred in the same general area shortly after the first crash. He said some bridges and overpasses had become slippery as a result of freezing temperatures, but he did not know if the crashes were weather related.
