Lawrence Township – Authorities say four cattle died when the trailer hauling them crashed in icy and snowy conditions in southwestern Michigan.

Michigan State Police officials say the semi-trailer was hauling more than 30 cattle early Wednesday when it flipped on Interstate 94 in Van Buren County’s Lawrence Township.

Two people in the vehicle weren’t injured. The crash scene took several hours to clear.

Investigators say the cause isn’t known but the area was experiencing white-out conditions.

A 30-vehicle pileup on I-94 in the county on Tuesday morning claimed the life of a Kalamazoo County resident.

The area remains under a winter weather advisory until Thursday morning, with additional snow accumulation of up to two inches.
