Two crashes reported on U.S. 23 near Plymouth Road in Ann Arbor

By Cindy Heflin

Two crashes were reported on northbound U.S. 23 on the east side of Ann Arbor Tuesday morning.

Neither of the crashes, which occurred between Plymouth Road and M-14, involved injuries, a dispatcher with the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office said.

One involved a semi truck and a car, and the other was reported to be a two-vehicle crash. Both crashes were off on the shoulder of the freeway and were not blocking traffic, a dispatcher with the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office said.

State police were on the scene of both crashes, the dispatcher said at 7:40 a.m.

The Ann Arbor crash scene is so regular and predictable, that overhead cameras could be used in a ploy to sell their results for entertainment and amusement. Same times, same locations, same results, same causes. I'm surprised Google has not joined this parade with a new selection named Crash-View. Cameras on the overhead bridges are all that's needed...

Not news unfortunately. Accidents on the freeways around Ann Arbor are daily occurences. I still think someone should keep a running tally on the front page. By the way, these have nothing to do with the Road Commission not clearing the freeways. I believe it has more to do with arrogant and distracted drivers.

Here's a story idea: Has there been a day in the past year when a crash did NOT slow traffic on US 23 or 14? If we estimate vehicle damage at, oh say, $10,000 per accident (to be on the conservative side), and 500 people's wasted time sitting in traffic at, say, $20/hour, how much do those accidents cost per year?

I completely agree with you, dotdash. How is it possible that SO many crashes occur? Are there really THAT many distracted or otherwise careless drivers on our roads?

Monday morning or Tuesday (today) morning??
