I-94 is just too dangerous to drive at all anymore, even in good weather. There is too much freight traffic, too few lanes and it would be nice if there were another route across southern Michigan. Apparently the state will have to resort to another tax increase to fix the problem.

I'm a local beef farmer, and I am glad that the cow was safe based on the pictures of the cow it looked as though it was pregant and it was about to give birth. Glad they could get it back into a trailer safely!

I was on my way back to Chicago and witnessed the 2nd two semi trucks collide about 20 yards in front of me. The one cow was lying down where the trailer was hit, I am surprised that it was not injured.

The craziest part of this scene came only 50 yards after passing the trucks. A car speed up on the right to get over and the semi layed on the horn. The guy got out of his car, threw down his gloves and went yelling at the truck driver. I seriously thought there was going to be a fight in the middle of the highway.
