Multiple crashes back up traffic on I-94 west of Ann Arbor-Saline Road

By Kyle Feldscher

A two-car crash has backed up westbound Interstate 94 near Ann Arbor-Saline Road Friday afternoon, but no one has been transported to the hospital, emergency personnel said.

Dispatchers confirmed a two-car crash blocked the road on the southwest side of Ann Arbor earlier Friday afternoon, but both lanes were open as of 3:10 p.m. Huron Valley Ambulance spokeswoman Joyce Williams said multiple crashes were reported in the area.

The crashes started a little before 2:30 p.m. Friday, Williams said. Details about the crashes were not available from dispatchers.

Troopers at the Michigan State Police Brighton Post were not able to give any details about the crashes when reached by Friday afternoon. Traffic appeared to be backed up as far as the I-94 interchange with Jackson Road.

It's no wonder that there are accidents there. Cars race up and jump in front of your lane to get to the exit. It's crazy drivers, and the other place I see this kind of thing all the time is at the east bound Huron exit. There are some really unsafe drivers in our area on 94.

Kyle, It sounds like you begin your article telling us about one accident in the westbound lanes of I-94, transition to multiple accidents reported in that same stretch of I-94, and finish with results from accidents in the eastbound lanes. Only eastbound traffic could get backed up in that area to Jackson Avenue.

Ann is right.

I still say if they gave IQ test to get your license the roads would be less crowded with fewer accidents!

Look - you people (the ones causing crashes) need to get this straight: In inclement weather, leave *several* car spaces between you and the car in front of you. As in, 10 or more. Your car simply cannot stop in time if there's a problem, even if you have snow tires. Your AWD makes no difference when braking.

In case you didn't read about my experience Thursday morning, a lot of us were going south on Whitmore Lake Road, under 5 mph, bumper to bumper. No, there were no crashes. Even at VERY low speed, I kept my eyes on the car immediately ahead of me, even downshifting when that car slipped a few inches left or right.
