Snow is leading to hazardous road conditions in parts of Michigan


ANN ARBOR, Michigan — Snow is leading to hazardous road conditions in parts of Michigan, with crashes reported in the Ann Arbor, Flint and Saginaw areas as well as southwestern Michigan.

Authorities in Washtenaw County responded Tuesday to several crashes as heavy, wet snow fell. Crashes were reported in Genesee and Saginaw counties.

In southwestern Michigan's Cass County, the sheriff's department says a two-vehicle crash Monday night amid wintry conditions sent four people to the hospital with injuries.

The National Weather Service says up to 6 inches of snow is forecast Tuesday in parts of Michigan's Thumb region. Lower snowfall totals are expected across southern Michigan, including the Detroit area.

Meanwhile, forecasters say a winter storm could drop 6 to 12 inches of snow on parts of the northern Lower Peninsula by Wednesday night.
