Michigan State Police said witnesses reported seeing a car lose control and begin swerving across the westbound lanes near Kent Lake. A semi-truck tried to avoid the car by hitting the brakes and was rear-ended by a flatbed truck that was carrying an MSP patrol car. The driver of the flatbed truck was killed.

The westbound lanes have been shut down at Milford Road since just before 11 a.m. and are expected to be closed until at least 2:30 p.m.
