Dozens of vehicles, upwards of 40, were involved in a fatal accident on I-96 westbound near Fowlerville in Michigan on Thursday morning.

The Livingston County Sheriff's Office says at least three people have died in the accident that occurred around 10 a.m. They say slick roads and white-out conditions appear to have caused the crash.

Officials have shut down both westbound and eastbound lanes. Eastbound I-96 is closed at M-52 and westbound I-96 is closed at Fowlerville Road.

We're told multiple fire departments are on the scene and that some people are being extricated from their vehicles.
