Truck Accident

COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - Motorists on I-69 headed southbound Wednesday night toward Branch County that were in a hurry probably arrived late to their various destinations. And it was another lesson on why you should never speed especially when roads are snow covered and slippery. Calhoun County deputies say around 9:30 pm, a tractor trailer loaded with carparts rear ended a county plow truck, causing it to spin out of control, coming to rest in the median.

The plow truck was scraping snow and spreading salt on the highway when the incident occurred. It happened north of Marshall near J-Drive North. The driver of the tractor trailer, a 44 year old Portage man, was found to be at fault and was issued a citation for driving too fast for conditions. Both trucks had to be towed from the scene, causing southbound I-69 to be temporarily shut down for 3 hours, and completely shut down for about 30 minutes. Fortunately, no injuries were reported.
