Car hits guardrail causing other vehicle crashes in St. Clair County

KIMBALL TOWNSHIP, MI – Four people suffered minor injuries as the result of three separate crashes yesterday morning on eastbound I-94 in Kimball Township.

According to St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon, deputies from the Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the scene of a crash on I-94, about a mile west of Gratiot Road shortly before 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday December 6th, 2017.

A vehicle driven by a 58-year-old Port Huron man had struck the median guardrail and ended up without lights partially in the roadway.

While deputies were on the way to the first crash, a second vehicle, driven by a 29-year-old woman from Clinton Township, did not see the first vehicle in the darkness and crashed into it. A third vehicle, driven by 48-year-old woman from Columbus Township swerved to avoid crashing into the first two vehicles and was rear-ended by a fourth vehicle, driven by a 25-year-old man from West Bloomfield. The secondary crashes occurred very shortly after the initial collision.

Once deputies arrived on the scene, eastbound I-94 was closed at Wadhams Road. All four drivers in the incident were transported by Tri-Hospital EMS to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the initial crash, which remains under investigation.

Marysville Police Department and Marysville Fire Department also assisted at the scene of the crash.
