UPDATE: M-32 Back Open in Otsego County

Posted: Updated:

M-32 east of Gaylord is back open now after a deadly accident between a car and a tanker.

The accident happened around 2 p.m. at the intersection of M-32 and Brooktrout. For awhile, traffic was being rerouted between Chester and Turtle Lake Road.

The fire chief says two people were in the car at the time of the accident; the passenger died, and the driver is in the hospital. The driver of the tanker wasn't hurt.

According to the fire chief, it appears low visibility and slippery roads played a role in the accident.

Everything is now cleaned up, and there was never any leak from the tanker.
