"When I heard the tragic news, it just bothers me because we all stick together out here. We keep in contact on the radio, so every driver is family," Hicks said.

The crash happened on I-94 near Baker Road in Scio Township and is being investigated by the MSP Brighton Post.

"Safety is priority. Every time we are on this road that's the main thing we practice, Hicks said. "Unfortunately, the situation that took place … it really hurts to see another co-driver lose their life." 

The crash is still under investigation and the identities of the drivers have not been released as of this time, Michigan State Police said in a tweet.

Hicks has a message for the grieving families.

"My prayers and condolences go out to them and I pray that they can get through this tragedy. They definitely have my prayers," said Hicks.
