One Killed In Southwest Michigan Crash

One person has died in a series of crashes and pileups on western Michigan roads amid blowing snow and slick pavement. Michigan State Police say one person was killed in a crash on US-131 in Allegan County about 7:40 a.m. that left northbound lanes closed for about two hours. The victim’s name wasn’t immediately released. The National Weather Service says more than 3 inches of snow was measured in the county Tuesday morning. It issued a winter weather advisory for several West Michigan counties for periodic snow showers through 7 p.m. Tuesday, including Van Buren County. State police also say a pileup on I-96 collected as many as 12 vehicles. The Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office says I-94 was closed in both directions near Kalamazoo at one point.
