Michigan State Police are investigating a fatal crash involving a semitrailer and several other vehicles on westbound Interstate 94.

According to Michigan State Police, troopers were called to the freeway near 10 Mile Road in St. Clair Shores around 1:30 p.m. March 7 for a rolled-over semi.

Traffic was slowing in the area westbound on the freeway, but a semi driver could not stop in time and rear-ended a Ford Taurus. The semi then rolled over, landing on a Chrysler and a Cadillac SUV, according to the MSP Metro Detroit Twitter page.

The female driver of the Ford Taurus was killed instantly, and the semi driver and drivers of the other vehicles suffered minor injuries.

Michigan State Police report that a fourth vehicle was also involved in the crash, although it is unclear when in the timeline it was involved. That driver also suffered minor injuries.

As of 3 p.m., the freeway remains closed for investigation.
