WJR-A tangled mess of trucks and vehicles. A nightmare. Quite a sight to see, according to reporter.
Two confirmed dead in the approach to the Rouge River Bridge. MState Police say the massive wreck site both north and south bound is closed and will be there for a while. Cars sandwiched between semis. One car looks wrung out like a dishrag. Green vest first responders everywhere.
Reports of a gasoline tanker among the wrecked vehicles.
Wreck site goes for at least a mile.
Reporter is at the base of the bridge.
All 4 lanes deadlocked. Obviously avoid the area. Many many emergency vehicles, ambulances backed up. Horrific.
Freeway will be closed for many many hours.
