SENEY, Mich. (AP) - Authorities in Michigan's Upper Peninsula have closed a highway because of a large multi-vehicle crash and whiteout conditions.

Michigan State Police said Sunday afternoon that M-28 in the central UP would be closed until further notice. It said the highway was closed between M-77 and M-94, a 25-mile stretch.

Police didn't immediately release details about the crash, but WLUC-TV, citing state police and the Michigan Department of Transportation, reported it was a 13-car pileup.

Sunday morning, authorities closed sections of two interstate highways in the Flint area following multiple crashes amid icy conditions.
