M 28 Accident Vo

More than seven miles of M-28 are back open in Chippewa County after they closed due to whiteout conditions.

Both lanes were closed between M-221 and I-75 Monday afternoon when up to 40 vehicles were in the ditch,  stuck, or parked in the roadway.

The Chippewa County Sheriff’s department says no one was injured. Deputies responded to several crashes Monday morning, including one involving multiple vehicles on M-28 near Soo Line.

Police were called out to M-28 around 9 a.m. No one was injured, but a car did end up in the ditch.

Drivers were asked to accommodate for the low visibility by slowing down and making sure headlights and seatbelts were on.
