Driver pronounced dead at scene, MSP says

BRIGHTON, Mich. – The driver of a Ford Mustang was killed Thursday in a crash on I-96 when he lost control of his car on an icy overpass and crashed into a guardrail and two other vehicles that had been involved in an earlier crash, state police said.

Troopers were called around 6:30 a.m. Thursday to eastbound I-96 in Livingston County, according to authorities.

Officials said the man lost control of his Mustang, went off the road, struck a guardrail and crashed into two vehicles that were already on the shoulder of the highway because of an earlier crash.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. His identity has not yet been revealed.

Michigan State Police said drivers should remember to slow down when winter weather arrives. Anyone involved in a crash without injuries should find a safe spot to park before calling police, according to authorities.
