This is still developing but at around 7:30 this morning there was a crash near near mile marker 120 in the eastbound lanes. The crash has taken a life as well as send a horse trailer into a ditch off the road.

The crash apparently began when a westbound vehicle was rear-ended and went across the median. MDOT has closed the westbound lanes of I-96 at M-52 until the clean-up is complete.

WLNS has the full story, but the investigation on this crash could keep I-96 closed in both directions for a few more hours until things are cleared up and are advised to seek an alternate route.

UPDATE - As of 2 pm the area around Mile Marker 120 was cleared and open for traffic today, but please be careful in that area.
