GENERIC: road close up

A 36-year-old man is dead after a crash on I-69 in Genesee County.

Flint Township Police say the man was driving a semi truck westbound toward Miller Road when he hit a car in the roadway.

The semi truck left the road and overturned as it traveled down a steep embankment.

The crash happened around 9:00 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 10.

The car had become disabled after its driver lost control. It's not clear how long the car was in the roadway before it was hit.

The driver of the semi truck has not been identified, but police say he was from Ontario, Canada.

Six other vehicles crashed while trying to avoid the same disabled car.

Two people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Police believe slippery road conditions and speed contributed to the crashes.

Westbound I-69 was closed for several hours as crews removed vehicles and debris from the scene.

The crash remains under investigation.
