"Road conditions on I-96 and U.S. 31 in the Fruitport Township area are extremely poor," said Detective Lt. Bruce Morningstart. "Roads are snow and ice covered and very slippery. Visibility is very limited due to continuous snowing and blowing/drifting."
Morningstar said that police are currently dealing with vehicles in ditches and crashes on the highways.
"Due to very limited visibility, police and wrecker drivers have experienced some very close calls today," he said.
"It is imperative that we have the cooperation of the public today in staying off the roadways. Each traffic incident on the highways puts everyone on the roadways at continued risk relating to crashes and secondary crashes," Morningstar said.
