TAYLOR (WWJ) – A Lincoln Park man was killed Wednesday in an accident on I-75 in Taylor.

Police said a truck driver heading south on I-75 near Eureka Road attempted to pull to the shoulder because of problems with his trailer. That’s when a pickup truck rear-ended the semi.

The 44-year-old driver of the 1997 Chevy pickup was pronounced dead at the scene. The semi-truck driver was uninjured.

That section of the freeway was shut down for about three hours following the crash.

Police said alcohol was not a factor and seatbelts were worn by both drivers.

The victim’s name was not immediately released.

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash is asked to call the Michigan State Police at 248-584-5740.
