DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - Police say an 87-year-old driver who was trying to change lanes is at fault for a crash and tanker truck fire that closed a stretch of Interstate 94 near Detroit last month.

State police announced an update on the investigation on Wednesday, saying the man’s car hit the truck in the eastbound lanes. Police say his car spun in front of the semi, causing the truck to hit another car and knock that car over the median wall of the freeway into the westbound lanes.

The tanker truck burned for nearly two hours following the crash March 11 in the suburb of Dearborn. The fire sent flames and black smoke into the air and across the area.

No serious injuries were reported.
