Update: I-69 Reopened After Fatal Crash
One person was killed in accident Wednesday morning on Intestate 69 south of Charlotte. The accident forced the shutdown of the highway between Cochran and Ainger Roads.
Eaton County's sheriff's department said the victim is a man in his 50's. They describe the accident as a single car rollover caused by icy road.
The unexpected icy roads caused a number of accidents all over mid-Michigan during the morning rush hour.
Jackson's sheriff's department received 21 reports of various types of crashes county wide. Some of them caused injuries, but none of them were believed to be life threatening.
Most of them occurred between 6am and 8:30am.
