CHIKAMING TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WNDU) - Police say alcohol was likely a factor in a wrong-way, head-on crash between a pickup truck and a semitrailer that closed Interstate 94 in Berrien County for hours Wednesday morning.
The crash happened around 3:01 a.m. near Lakeside Road, according to a release from the Berrien County Sheriff's Office.
Police were alerted to a 1993 GMC Sierra pickup truck speeding east in the westbound lanes from Indiana into Michigan, and officers attempted to stop the vehicle near Lakeside Road.
The driver allegedly did not stop, crossing the median to continue east in the eastbound lanes before once again crossing the median into oncoming traffic and being hit by a semi headed west.
"It is unknown at this time if this was an intentional act by the suspect driver," the sheriff's office says in the release.
Police arrested 25-year-old Diego Flores-Valero, of Chicago, "after a short struggle with arresting officers." He was transported to the hospital for observation.
Flores-Valero has been charged with operating while intoxicated, fleeing and eluding, and resisting or obstructing police.
