VEVAY TWP, Mich. (WILX) - Around 8:00 a.m. Tuesday, a tanker carrying propane collided with an SUV at a curve on Dansville Road between Mason and Dansville, causing the truck to leak diesel fuel.

The crash forced the area of Dansville Road between Diamond and Every Roads to be shut down to traffic while emergency services responded.

Police say the SUV was traveling westbound when it hit a curb due to excessive speed for road conditions. It ran into the eastbound tanker and was pushed into the ditch. Officials say the driver and passenger of the SUV had moderate to severe injuries but could provide no further details at the time. The driver of the propane truck was not injured.

The area of the crash was cleaned up, but a strong smell of propane lingered in the residential area for several hours.
