Icy conditions contribute to numerous weather-related crashes around Washtenaw County
Saturday morning's light snow and close to freezing temperatures created dangerous conditions on many expressways in Washtenaw County.
There were numerous crashes and rollovers as well as fender-benders on M-14, US-23 and at several places along I-94.
Two crashes blamed on icy bridge conditions occurred on I-94 just west of Rawsonville Road at 9:20 a.m.
According to Capt. Victor Chevrette of the Ypsilanti Township Fire Department, a family from Canada suffered minor injuries in one of those crashes. Everyone was wearing seatbelts. They were treated and transported to the hospital, Chevrette said.
Another driver was also injured in that same location in a separate crash and was treated for minor injuries and transported to the hospital, he said.
Chevrette said the dangerous conditions had dissipated by Saturday afternoon.
