The accident occurred at the Buttermilk Parkway exit on I-71/75 on Tuesday. The accident was caused when a truck carrying paper suffered a structural collapse while traveling on the highway. The driver then drove into the highway wall, taking out a light post and crashing into several cars.

However, there were no injuries at the scene.

Traffic was going slow in both directions on the highway, but the southbound lane is now clear. Crews are still clearing the accident on the northbound lane.
