LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - A multi-vehicle accident Wednesday involving a Tesla and semi-truck with rotten apples hospitalized three people with minor injuries.

The driver of a Tesla vehicle spotted a bakery rack along southbound US-127, north of Michigan Avenue, and attempted to swerve out of the way to avoid hitting it.

That’s when drivers of two other vehicles crashed in the area, followed by a semi-truck carrying rotten apples, police and fire officials said.

Apples were found scattered along the highway.

Southbound US-127 from Lake Lansing Road to the Interstate 496 interchange was closed to traffic so crews could clear the area, but opened back up about 2:20 p.m. Wednesday.
