According to friend on scene, D705 was put into emergency in Williamston and is now split in two.

Another just said it had a knuckle break.

Via radio, sounded like they still called for a cab in Lansing as mentioned earlier here.

Per Google maps, looks like they have Zimmer road blocked west of Williamston.

That would be correct. Their head on power is about I'd say 15 cars ahead of the intermediates at milepost 75.
