Friday morning commuters faced a nightmare on westbound I-96, which was closed for the bulk of rush hour after a crash.

The crash, reported at about 6;15 a.m. Friday, involved a pallet truck that lost its load, leaving piles of pallets behind.

As of 8 a.m., it had only partially reopened at Beech Daly in Redford Township -- and the back-ups were staggering. Schoolcraft and Telegraph were impacted as well.

No serious injuries were reported.
