UPDATE 1:47 p.m., April 9: This article has been updated to clarify that two semi-trailers crashed in the same area hours apart.
ANN ARBOR, MI – The M-14 heading east was turned on and off after a tractor crash on Thursday.
The first crash occurred when a semi-jackknif arrived in the area of East M-14 and Main Street before 4 p.m. on April 8, said Aaron Jenkins, Michigan Department of Transportation spokesman. The closure was later relocated to the M-14 and Miller Road to the east.
This crash was fixed at 7:49 PM
A second semi crashed and rolled over at 11:14 p.m. in the same area on the M-14 near Miller Road, Jenkins said. At 12:18 a.m. on April 9, closure was rescheduled to M-14 and I-94, Jenkins said.
The semi was moved up at 5:41 a.m. on Friday, Jenkins said. The trailer had fallen apart and the load had to be unloaded. It’s unclear what was in the trailer, he said.
The freeway reopened at 11:19 a.m., he said.
The second semi-driver was not injured, said Michigan state police. He was given a ticket for driving too fast for road conditions in the rain, police said.
