Driver Injured in Semi Accident Recovering from Surgery

The semi driver who was airlifted to a hospital after being seriously injured in a large crash this week is recovering.

A semi rear-ended a Greyhound bus, which was rear-ended by another semi. It happened between the on-and-off ramps near the State Road exit.

Westbound I-96 in Ionia was closed for hours.

  • Westbound I-96 was back open Monday night following a major accident involving two semi-trucks and a Greyhound bus, but not before it backed up traffic for several miles. The backups forced many drivers to either wait it out or try to find another route. Police said the first semi hit the bus before being rear-ended by the second semi in between the entrance and exit ramps at M-66 in Ionia County.
