All lanes reopen on Interstate 94 in Michigan after pileup

GALESBURG, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say all lanes have reopened on Interstate 94 in southwestern Michigan two days after the 193-vehicle pileup on the snowy highway.

  State transportation officials say the eastbound lanes reopened Sunday morning, a few hours after those on the westbound side.

  Efforts to reopen the highway stalled Saturday as crews tried to remove acid from a tanker truck.

  It was one of the many vehicles involved in the Friday morning pileup, which killed a 57-year-old trucker from Saint-Chrysostome, Quebec. About two dozen people were taken to hospitals.

  A truck carrying fireworks caught fire, triggering an explosion. That driver wasn't hurt.

  The chain of crashes happened in Kalamazoo County
