A power line fell onto a vehicle Tuesday on I-75 in Oakland County. 

The power line fell across all lanes of traffic, resting on at least one vehicle. DTE Energy workers were able to free the vehicle from the wire.

UPDATE: Construction crew caused power line to fall onto I-75

Traffic was shut down in both directions between 12 Mile and 14 Mile roads. Northbound I-75 was closed at 12 Mile Road and southbound I-75 was closed at 14 Mile Road.

Some drivers who were stuck in the backup decided cross over to the other side of the interstate. 

No injuries have been reported.
