MARNE, Mich. — Another pileup of cars, trucks, and semis has been taking place on I-96, this time in the westbound lanes.

Scanner traffic from Kent County Dispatch, Ottawa County dispatch, and Michigan State Police, indicated there were at least three semis involved, including one that jackknifed.

The westbound lanes were closed at 8th Avenue, but one lane was open by 12:15 p.m.

Dispatch calls on the pileup first went out around 11:25 a.m., with multiple reports of cars in the ditch.

The eastbound lanes appeared to be unaffected.
