Northern Michigan Highway Reopens After Crash, Whiteout

Authorities in Michigan's Upper Peninsula have reopened a highway that was closed because of a large multi-vehicle crash that seriously injured three people.

Michigan State Police say Michigan highway 28 in the central Upper Peninsula was back open Sunday evening after being shut down Sunday afternoon amid whiteout conditions following the crash near Seney.

WLUC-TV reports a vehicle rear-ended a pickup truck that was pulling a trailer, causing a chain reaction that damaged at least eight vehicles. The crash occurred on slippery, snow-covered roads. The highway had been closed along a 25-mile (40-kilometer) stretch between M-77 and M-94.

Severe weather continued in Michigan on Monday, with several inches (centimeters) of snow forecast and hundreds of schools closed in anticipation of bad driving conditions.
