Michigan roads: Pothole on I-75 causes big issues for drivers headed to Downtown Detroit

Pothole damages multiple drivers' vehicles

DETROIT – A new pothole on I-75 near the Lodge Freeway is causing big issues for drivers headed into Downtown Detroit.

Two drivers hit the massive hole just minutes apart Tuesday, and their vehicles had  flat tires and bent rims.

"I tried to avoid it, but it was too big and I had another car behind me so I couldn't move over. I ran right into it and hit it," Mitchell said.

The Michigan Department of Transportation said the Wayne County Road Commission handles the freeway and will be notified about the hole.
