Crashes on US-131 in Grand Rapids and in Kalamazoo delayed a lot of drivers Friday morning.

The intersection of Patterson Avenue and 44th Street was also clogged due to a crash that involved serious injuries.

Southbound US-131 was partially blocked north of I-94 by a crash first reported shortly after 6:30 a.m. Traffic was backed up until the crash was cleared shortly before 8 a.m.

No one was hurt in a multi-vehicle crash that blocked the center lanes of northbound US-131.

The crash took place just before 7:30 a.m., and traffic was backed up to 44th Street and slowed beginning around 54th Street. Traffic was sluggish until the crash was cleared around 8:25 a.m.
