Trucker ticketed after rear-ending two vehicles, striking illegally parked tow truck, Michigan troopers say


Michigan State Police (MSP) say that a semi truck driver was cited on Monday following a multi-vehicle collision in Belleville.

The crash occurred shortly after 4 p.m. on July 10 on I-94.

Troopers say that a semi truck was westbound on I-94 when it rear-ended two vehicles, “then lost control, drove down the right ditch onto the N/B I-94 Service Drive, through the fence, ultimately striking an illegally parked tow truck on the shoulder of the service drive.”

No serious injuries were reported.

MSP said that both the semi truck driver and the tow driver were cited following the crash.

“We know that certain risky driving behaviors lead to most of the crashes in Metro Detroit.” said MSP First Lt. Mike Shaw, Public Information Officer. “Following too closely is one of the behaviors. It is important to leave enough room to stop your vehicle safely.”
