(WXYZ) — Eastbound I-96 at Schaefer in Wayne County has reopened after an MDOT worker's vehicle was struck Saturday morning.

On Feb. 15 around 12:25 p.m., troopers responded to eastbound I-96 local lanes near Meyers in Detroit.

A preliminary investigation found that two MDOT trucks with rolling arrow boards attached were working in the left two lanes.

Witnesses reported that a 4-door Honda was driving carelessly and rear-ended the center lane MDOT vehicle with the driver inside. The green Honda deflected into the right lane and was rear-ended by a semi truck.

Troopers say there are no serious injuries in this incident.

The freeway has reopened following cleanup and investigation, troopers say.
