Near White-out Conditions Cause Vehicle Crashes in Livingston County

Weather conditions have caused numerous crashes all over the region in Southeastern Michigan.

Near white-out conditions caused several accidents in Livingston County and several crashes across the region Thursday afternoon.

Livingston County 911 Central Dispatch reported numerous accidents in problem areas like eastbound I-96 near M-59, Hartland and Dunham roads and Old US-23 and Crouse Road in Hartland Township, according to Livingston Daily.

Fenton Patch reported at least five crashes within an hour of each other, mainly on US-23.

A 20-car pileup, involving two semi trucks occurred in Mundy Township, closing US 23 between Hill and Thompson Roads, reported the Flint Journal.

The storm also contributed to a horrific accident on I-75 in Detroit as three people were killed and 20 people hurt in an at least 30 car crash, reported the Detroit News.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for southeastern Michigan, including Livingston County. The advisory is in effect until 7 p.m. Thursday.

Snow squalls will produce around 2-inches of snowfall, but some areas could see as much as 4-inches. Snowfall rates within the most intense snow bands will exceed 1-inch per hour. Visibilities will be reduced to less than a quarter mile and road conditions will deteriorate as snow causes slippery, wet surfaces.

Greetings to all my friends in Hartland from sunny Florida where it is currently 80, don't miss that stuff one bit. If you need me I will be at the fishing pier. P.S. If you need an extra snow shovel I left one in the barn.

And it appears as though it's getting worse tonight! I hope the schools check the roads in the morning before sending our kids off in these horrible conditions.
