Lumber Truck Tips Over On I-96 Ramp

DELTA TWP - A tractor trailer carrying a load of lumber has overturned in Delta Township.

The driver lost control and tipped over on the westbound ramp off of I-96 entering onto westbound Saginaw Highway. Hundreds of 2X4's have spilled along the ramp.

The accident happened at about 10:00 in the morning. An Eaton County Sheriff deputy tells News 10 that the driver of the semi was not hurt. I-96 lanes are moving, but the ramp will be closed for several hours, while the truck and trailer are righted and the lumber is picked up. It was not immediately known where the truck was from or where it was heading.
