PORTAGE, Mich. — Heavy snowfall and freezing rain is creating a problem for drivers across West Michigan.

It took police and fire personnel about an hour to clear a jackknifed semi from westbound I-94 at the US-131 overpass in Portage. Officials say the crash caused a leak of diesel fuel.

Westbound I-94 was down to one lane near the overpass until crews managed to clear the semi off the road.

It is not clear if anyone was injured.
