Truck driver lost her life in crash on WB I-96 near Milford Road

State police said a preliminary crash investigation has revealed that a semi truck started to have engine problems on westbound I-96 near Kent Lake Road.

The driver pulled the truck over mostly onto the shoulder, but not all the way.

A box truck struck the rear of the semi truck, killing the driver of the box truck.

Police said he was a 35-year-old man from St. Clair. The semi truck driver did not report being injured.

State police said firefighters and troopers were working to cut the driver out of the box truck.

The driver was eventually removed.

The westbound lanes of the interstate reopened after 4 p.m. when fuel was cleared off the highway. “We are hoping to have the freeway reopened before the rush hour starts,” reads a statement from state police.
