JACKSON (WWJ) – A multi-vehicle accident that shut down westbound I-94 west of Jackson, late Thursday morning, sent one woman to the hospital in serious condition.

The four-car accident occurred just west of Dearing Road in a construction zone. The woman had to be freed from her car by emergency personnel.

Sheriff’s officials said no construction workers were hurt in the crash.

At 12:30 p.m., westbound I-94 remained closed at Dearing Road in Jackson County, with backed up to M-60.  WWJ Traffic Reporter Lorna Stevens suggested Michigan Ave. as an alternate.
