LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Tuesday morning's snow caused a lot of issues for drivers across West Michigan, including those traveling on I-94.

A semi truck went into the ditch off the eastbound lanes around 7 a.m. trapping the driver inside.

Rescue personnel were able to extract him from the cab and get him to the hospital.

The crash caused a long back up as crews pulled the truck out of the ditch.
