LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - A semi-truck crash happened on US-127 between East Saginaw Avenue and Grand River Avenue about 4 p.m. Wednesday.

US-127 between those roads is closed and drivers should avoid the area.

Police and an ambulance crew were on the scene.

According to police, the accident was caused by a tire on the semi blowing out. Luckily, no one was hurt and no other vehicles except the semi were involved in the accident.

Police say they are now investigating the diesel fuel leakage on the highway. Police also say it may take some time for southbound US-127 from Saginaw to Grand River to reopen.

Earlier Wednesday in an unrelated crash, a truck carrying rotten apples was involved in a crash nearby on US-127 that dumped its cargo across the road.

This is a breaking news story. WILX News 10 is working to get more details.
