UPDATE: 6 injured in 45 car pile-up on I-94 in Van Buren County


A portion of Interstate 94 in Michigan was standing still Monday night after a 45 car pile-up.

The Van Buren County Sheriff's Office says the accident happened around 5pm near the 55 mile marker.  Of those 45 vehicles, dispatchers say at least 20 were tractor trailers.

The Van Buren County Sheriff's Department says six people were injured in the crash, none of them life-threatening. Four people were taken to an area hospital for treatment, though.

Lanes were closed well into the night following the massive crash.  The sheriff says a semi lost control which led to a chain reaction of crashes.  Poor visibility and other weather conditions were a major factor in the crash, according to police.
