US-127 ramp in Lansing blocked by 45,000 pounds of steel from overturned semi
LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - 45,000 pounds of steel blocked an exit ramp to US-127 on Tuesday. Authorities said it would take hours to clear the obstruction.
Emergency crews were sent to US-127 in the early afternoon Tuesday on reports of an overturned semitruck on the exit ramp. On the scene, emergency responders found the truck was turned on its side, spilling the 45,000 pounds of steel it had been hauling.
Delhi Township Fire Assistant Chief Leo Allaire said the accident involved only one vehicle, the semitruck, which Allaire said was going too fast on the ramp to US-127. Crews on the scene estimated the 106 B ramp will be down for several hours.
Despite the heavy materials involved in the crash, the driver was uninjured.
