Snow and ice covered roads make for dangerous commute

Posted: Updated:

The recent snowfall made for a dangerous commute this morning. Traffic was backed up in numerous locations due to crashes, spin outs, and disabled vehicles.

Troopers say just before 2 AM this morning, a car crashed into the back of a semi on northbound I-75 near Cygnet at mile marker 169.  One person was killed and another was sent to a Wood County hospital.

US 23 in Lucas County also proved to be quite dangerous. There was a major traffic snarl on northbound US 23 just north of Airport Highway, when a van crashed through the guardrail and down the embankment. A few miles south in the southbound lanes at Dussel, a crash involving a semi and four other vehicles had the expressway shut down. 

At one point, crews closed southbound I-75 at Erie Street in Monroe County to upright a jackknifed semi.
