Authorities are investigating after a semi-truck driver was killed in a crash on a Michigan interstate. 

It happened about 7:04 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 7 on eastbound I-94 near Zeeb Road in  Washtenaw County’s Scio Township.

Investigators said a 2006 Volvo semi-truck was heading east on I-94 in the right lane when the driver lost control and veered onto the shoulder. A 2012 Volvo semi-truck hit the rear of the first semi.

The driver of the 2006 semi-truck, a 45-year-old woman from Ontario, Canada, was taken by ambulance to the University of Michigan Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.

Michigan State Police are still trying to contact the families of those involved in the crash.
