Accident in Michigan

Saw this accident today on US-131 in Grand Rapids Michigan. Not a good picture but the TV looks small.

Looks big enough. More likely driver error.

Looks like a pathfinder or maybe an armada. Hope no one was injured.

the local news is reporting that no one was hurt. The said that it jack knifed and is facing the wrong way on the highway. It happens before lunch, and none of the articles have been updated to explain what happened.
