day: Icy interstate leads to fuel tanker crash Start the day smarter. Get all the news you need in your inbox each morning. A tractor trailer

heading east on Interstate 94 and carrying fuel crashed at about 11:15 a.m., forcing authorities to close part of the freeway. Michigan State Police said the truck was driving

much too fast for the inclement weather conditions. The tanker driver was uninjured and declined medical treatment, police said. But the

trailer smashed into a wall near Mt. Elliott, which sent debris onto the westbound lanes of I-94. The crash caused a secondary collision and a fuel leak, police said. Westbound

I-94 was closed to Van Dyke to clean up the fuel and debris. Delta requests ground stop at DTW Detroit

the ground at their origination airport — for flights bound for Detroit until about 12:45 p.m. The airport, she said, did not have information on why, but the

stop was lifted by 12:25 p.m.
