Mundy Township, MI (December 3, 2023) - Traffic was backed up for miles on northbound U.S. 23 after a trailer slammed into the Maple Road bridge following a wreck in Mundy Township on Friday morning.

The crash was reported around 10:30 a.m., and it led emergency crews to close two lanes of the freeway. All lanes reopened shortly before 1:00 p.m. Friday. Photos from the scene show a semi-trailer torn into multiple pieces right after the stretch where U.S. 23 and I-75 merge. Other debris was scattered all over the freeway, and an oily substance spilled as well. At least two drivers were assessed for injuries at the scene, though their current conditions are unknown, and an investigation is still ongoing.

Our thoughts go out to the injured victims and their loved ones. We hope for their full recovery.

Tractor-Trailer Crashes in Michigan

Mundy Twp, MI - US 23 Site of Semi-Truck Wreck, Injuries at Maple RdThousands of people use Michigan's bustling, multi-lane roadways daily to go to and from work, especially in large cities like Detroit and Lansing. Thus, it should come as no surprise that some of the most congested and hazardous regions in the Great Lakes State may be found on Interstate 75 between Interstate 96 and the intersection with Interstate 94, on Interstate 94 between Vining Road and Telegraph Road, and on Interstate 7 Mile Road.

While speeds of up to 75 mph are legal in Michigan, the vast majority of the state's roadways have 65 mph or 55 mph restrictions posted. In addition, when accidents occur at these greater speeds, everyone involved is far more likely to suffer serious injuries or perhaps die.

It's no secret that the Detroit region has a high rate of serious injuries caused by car crashes. However common automobile accidents may be, those who are injured often face a difficult situation after the fact due to factors including high medical bills, lost wages from time spent recovering, and other costs.

When drivers are at fault for an accident due to their own carelessness, they will frequently attempt to shift the responsibility onto the victims. The at-fault driver's insurance company may attempt to minimize your injuries or give you inadequate compensation.

If you were hurt on a U.S. road due to another driver's carelessness, you should be compensated fairly and equitably. An experienced personal injury attorney in Detroit will take care of the following for you if you choose them:

  • Putting together a database of relevant data and examining the crash's circumstances.
  • Use footage from sources like traffic light cameras or security cameras to support your version of events.
  • Gather testimonies from various interviewees and compare them.
  • Talking to the insurance company.
  • Calculating a rough figure for the compensation you deserve after suffering losses.
  • Considering and commenting on all insurance company settlement offers.
