DETROIT (AP) ? Blinding snow squalls, high winds and a slick highway led to a mile-long series of crashes in Detroit that left at least three people dead Thursday, including a 7-year-old boy and 9-year-old girl. Michigan State Police Lt. Michael Shaw said visibility was extremely poor when the mass of crashes happened on Interstate 75 on the southwest side of the city. SUVs with smashed front ends and cars with doors hanging open sat scattered across the debris-littered highway, some crunched against jackknifed tractor-trailers and tankers. Authorities said five people remained hospitalized Thursday evening, including one in critical condition, and the interstate was closed for several hours. Semi-trailers and tankers dominate the interstate, some hauling loads and liquids to a nearby refinery and steel companies. In southwest Michigan, eight tractor-trailers and six cars crashed on I-94, closing the westbound lanes to traffic at Paw Paw for several hours. In Detroit, scores of vehicles that escaped damage were trapped on the freeway behind the accident scene for hours. Phillip Bost was driving a semi-truck loaded with auto parts when the snow squall hit.
