Snowy and icy conditions have caused hundreds of accidents around Michigan as icing and blustery winds made travel hazardous.

Part of Interstate 475 near Flint was shut early Tuesday by a semi crash. Part of Interstate 75 near Saginaw was shut from late Monday into early Tuesday because of a multi-vehicle crash.

In western Michigan, weather was seen as a factor in at least two fatal crashes.

State police say one person died in a Monday evening crash in Kalamazoo County's Alamo Township, northwest of Kalamazoo. The Barry County sheriff's department says a man was killed in a Monday afternoon rollover in Hastings Township.

The Detroit area also saw icy roads.

More snow was forecast in places into Wednesday, with the biggest accumulations in the Upper Peninsula.
