MONROE, Mich. (WJBK) -- Icy road conditions are causing problems across the state, including a stretch of Interstate 75 in southeastern Michigan.

A semi-truck crash north of Monroe shut down part of the freeway for several hours on Wednesday morning. Traffic was moving again after 6:30 a.m., but very slow.

No injuries were reported.

The crash comes after authorities in Monroe County warned people to stay off the roads if possible through Wednesday morning. The advisory issued Tuesday asked people to stay off primary, secondary and side roads unless needed for work or emergencies.

Crews spent the day removing snow and stuck vehicles. Winds made the problem worse, sending snow onto roads that had been cleared.

The arctic blast was easing its grip on Michigan, but bitterly cold temperatures are expected throughout Wednesday in the state.

      A Delta Air Lines flight from La Guardia Airport to West Palm Beach, Florida, was diverted to Jacksonville because of a dispute between passengers over a reclining seat. Delta reportedly says the flight was diverted Monday night when a woman got into an argument with a passenger behind her when the woman was trying to recline her seat while the other passenger was trying to sleep on the tray table.
