DETROIT – Michigan State Police said westbound lanes of I-94 were closed Monday after a driver crashed while trying to see a crash on the eastbound side of the freeway.

All eastbound lanes of I-94 at I-75 were closed for a six-vehicle crash when the gawking driver hit another vehicle and the dividing wall, causing troopers to close the westbound left shoulder, left lane and center lane.

MSP is using the crash as an example of why drivers shouldn't gawk at crashes.
