The southbound side of the Lodge Freeway was temporarily closed Tuesday afternoon at 8 Mile Road due to a deadly crash.

Michigan State Police say a pickup truck had pulled over to the left side of freeway.

Both occupants got out of the pickup to adjust something. A car traveling behind them could not stop and hit the pickup and both occupants. One of them was killed.

The other is in serious condition.

Only one southbound lane was open for more than an hour.
