Injuries Minor in 20-Vehicle UP Collision

ST. IGNACE, Mich. (AP) - White-out conditions caused by blowing snow are blamed for a 20-vehicle collision on an Upper Peninsula highway.

Mackinac County Sheriff Scott Strait says injuries from the chain-reaction crash in Moran Township are believed to be minor. He described the conditions as "just a mess" and says visibility was so poor that snowmobiles had to be used to get to the wreckage.

U.S. 2 is closed from Interstate 75 to M-77, west of St. Ignace and the Mackinac Bridge. Crews have plowed one lane of U.S. 2 near the crash site.

Strait is advising people to stay off the roads. He says a semi-truck ran into the rear of a patrol car earlier Friday on U.S. 2. The deputy was not injured.
