GALESBURG, Mich. (AP) - State police say a 193-vehicle pileup that closed a stretch of Interstate 94 in Michigan for two days started in eastbound lanes and likely spread to westbound lanes because motorists became distracted by the crashes.

Lt. Dale Hinz (HINS) tells the Kalamazoo Gazette (https://bit.ly/1FMj0t3 ) that investigators have no evidence that cars or trucks crossed the median Friday’s crashes in near Galesburg in eastern Kalamazoo County, 150 miles east of Chicago.

An unidentified 57-year-old Canadian truck driver died.

Also Friday, 59-year-old Derrick Albert of Toledo, Ohio, died in a 27-vehicle pileup during a whiteout on U.S. 23 near Milan in southeastern Michigan, and 10-year-old Zaccary West of Hawks died in a two-car crash on a slippery road in Presque Isle County in the northern Lower Peninsula.
