Officials are responding to a massive accident scene along Interstate 94 in Michigan near Paw Paw, WOOD-TV reported.

According to the report, Van Buren County dispatchers said that between 20 and 50 cars were involved in the pileup.

The westbound lanes were shut down, and traffic is being directed to another road.

The Weather Channel reported that some people were injured in the accident. There have been no reported deaths.

“Whiteout conditions” contributed to the accident, according to the Weather Channel.

The incident triggered the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department to activate the county’s emergency operations center, according to WOOD-TV.

The Red Cross, meanwhile, will send buses to assist stranded drivers.

A dispatcher told the Detroit Free Press that the local police department sent “everybody that we have” to the accident. “Everyone who is available is there,” she added. The freeway between exit 56 and exit 66 is closed down, she said.
