A freeway ramp was closed for most of the afternoon after an accident involving a truck.
The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office says that deputies were dispatched at approximately 10:30 a.m. Thursday to an overturned semi-tractor trailer on the entrance ramp to east I-96 from Pinckney Road in Marion Township.
A preliminary investigation indicated a 48-year-old Commerce Township man was turning left from Pinckney Road to enter I-96 east. The driver took the turn too fast causing the trailer to overturn which also took the 2006 Volvo semi-tractor with it.
The driver was wearing his safety belt and was not injured in the crash. However, the entrance ramp was closed for approximately 4 hours while the semi-tractor trailer was up righted and removed.
Deputies were assisted on scene by The Michigan State Police, The Howell Area Fire Department and
the Michigan Department of Transportation.
