A crash involving a semi-truck closed down a portion of westbound I-96 in Ingham County on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning.

The crash occurred around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday when a semi reportedly went off the road and caught fire.

Heavy presence by fire and emergency crews prompted a partial closure of westbound I-96 approaching Williamston Road (Exit 117).

The closure continued through the evening and crews reopened the roadway around 5:00 a.m. Thursday.

No word on injuries or what caused the driver to veer off the roadway.
