Icy roads were the cause of two separate crashes in Paw Paw Township, Michigan Thursday morning. In addition, the first accident happened on I-94 near exit 56 when a semi lost control and hit a deputy's car, which was on the side of the road investigating another crash. As a result, the deputy's vehicle was rolled on its side with the driver still inside. The deputy had to be evacuated out of the vehicle by crews and was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the semi suffered only minor injuries and was treated at a hospital and released. The vehicle, which was already on the side of the road, was not impacted in the crash, and the driver and passenger were unharmed.
The second crash happened when a semi lost control near the Decatur exit, and struck a deputy's vehicle that was parked on the side of the interstate directing traffic from another crash. Luckily the deputy was not inside of the vehicle at the time of the crash, and no was injured. Both semi drivers in both crashes were ticketed for driving too fast for the condition.
