A five vehicle crash today on the west bound I-96 near S State Rd. was caused by a commercial vehicle.

Ionia County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to the crash and their investigation determined the cause of the incident was that the commercial vehicle did not slow down at the beginning of a construction zone.

Two people were taken to a hospital in Grand Rapids with non-life threatening injuries.

The sheriff’s office would like to remind drivers that it is construction season so please be aware of changing traffic conditions and pay attention for unexpected traffic back-ups.
