Storm bringing snow, slick roads to Mich.

DETROIT (AP) — A weekend storm expected to bring a half-foot or more of snow to parts of the Lower Peninsula also has been snarling roadways.

Detroit radio and television stations have reported numerous vehicle accidents and spinouts Saturday across southeastern Michigan.

The Michigan State Police said in a release Saturday afternoon that troopers have handled about 300 service calls and more than 50 traffic crashes in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.

The Saginaw News reports authorities closed part of north Interstate 75 in Saginaw County for a few hours because of crashes.

Wintry weather has caused problems on many Michigan roads in recent days, including a 40-vehicle pileup Thursday on U.S. 31 in Fruitland Township near Muskegon.
