Car careens off I-75 causes 20-car pileup

A 20 car pile-up has shut down northbound I-375.

The accident stemmed from a driver losing control on Gratiot sending her car careening off the bridge and onto the freeway.

Drivers on I-375 were unable to stop because the freeway was a solid sheet of ice. A mother and child had to be extricated from the upended car.

They were both transported to the hospital. Officials at the scene say the road was a sheet of ice at the time, which led to the accident. 

All other drivers were provided a warming bus during the clean-up.
