OAK PARK (WWJ) – A jackknifed semi on I-696 is causing major traffic backups for the soggy morning commute Tuesday.

The accident happened around 6 a.m. on westbound I-696 at Lincoln, just west of Greenfield Road in Oak Park.

Vehicles are backed up for miles, beyond Woodward, as traffic is passing by the scene in two lanes.

Other circumstances surrounding the crash, and whether the rain played a role, weren’t immediately clear.
