UNDATED (WHTC) -- An accident involving an 18-wheeler Tuesday afternoon brought traffic to a standstill on I-196.  The accident happened in westbound lanes near the Lane Avenue exit about 5:45 p.m.  Both directions of I-196 were closed at the US 131 interchange at Michigan Avenue for about an hour.  The 18-wheeler did have a fire but emergency crews got the blaze extinguished and the driver was rescued.  The eastbound lanes of I-196 opened about 6:45 p.m.  As of 8:00, westbound 196 is still closed and so is the Northbound US-131 ramp to Westbound I-196.  There are no reports of injuries.
