JACKSON, Mich. (AP) — Jackson County Sheriff officials say a winter storm that dumped up to 7 inches of snow on parts of southeast Michigan kept deputies busy as snowy roads and limited visibility caused numerous accidents on roadways.
Sheriff officials say they responded to 28 accidents between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. Wednesday. No one was seriously injured in any of the crashes.
Sgt. Tom Schuette tells MLive.com (http://bit.ly/ZD2d74 ) most were "cars that had flied off the roadway after the driver lost control." He says most crashes occurred on U.S. 127 and I-94.
The winter storm was the region's first big snowstorm of the season, which peaked during the evening rush hour, causing widespread traffic accidents while interrupting hundreds of flights at Detroit Metropolitan Airport
