Michigan Police Probe 193 Vehicle Pileup on I-94

State police say a 193-vehicle pileup that closed a stretch of Interstate 94 in Michigan for two days started in eastbound lanes and likely spread to westbound lanes because motorists became distracted by the crashes.

Lt. Dale Hinz says investigators have no evidence that cars or trucks crossed the median in eastern Kalamazoo County. He says a trucker killed Friday was not at the front or the back of the crashes.

Hinz tells the Kalamazoo Gazette that it could take weeks to determine what happened. That work started Monday with the help of GPS data.

State police are treating crashes on each side of I-94 as separate crash scenes. The pileup was between mile markers 88 and 92, near Galesburg and 150 miles east of Chicago.
