Highway damaged by pileup

Pits and gouges will remain on Interstate 94 in southwest Michigan between Kalamazoo and Battle Creek until crews can repave the areas where several vehicles burned in a massive pileup on Friday.  Michigan State Police say 123 vehicles were involved in the crash that closed both the east and westbound lanes of I-94 from late Friday morning until 4:30 a.m. on Sunday.  A truck driver from Canada was killed, and nearly two-dozen others were hospitalized with injuries.  It had been estimated the highway would be reopened around 1 a.m. Saturday, but there were problems unloading hazardous materials from one of the semis in the crash.  (MRN)
