MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. (WXYZ) — Michigan State Police have confirmed a fatal accident on westbound I-94 in St. Clair Shores Thursday afternoon.

The accident happened on westbound I-94 at 10 Mile Road, which has since reopened. MSP says one victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Around 1:30 p.m., troopers responded to the report of a rolled over semi. Police say traffic began to slow down and the semi truck driver could not stop in time, rear-ending a Ford Taurus.
