LANSING – Authorities closed Interstate 96 near Portland late Saturday after a pileup involving 50 to 100 vehicles in the eastbound lanes, according to a Twitter message from the Michigan State Police First District.

Michigan State Police officials said they closed I-96 near Grand River Avenue in Portland just after 5 p.m. Saturday after the crash. There were whiteout conditions before the accumulation, but the sun came out and the sky cleared by the time they released a picture showing the debris.

Injuries were reported, Michigan State Police said, but the severity of the injuries was unknown.

Video obtained by the State Journal shows multiple cars colliding with the cable barrier that separates the eastbound and westbound lanes.
