DAVISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Traffic is moving again on Interstate 69 near Flint after the crash of a truck hauling crude oil closed the roadway.

The Flint Journal reports one lane of eastbound I-69 was back open Friday morning.

The truck crashed Thursday on the snowy expressway in Genesee County's Davison Township, forcing a brief evacuation of homes and businesses. The driver walked away from the crash, but was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Officials say the truck was carrying tens of thousands of pounds of crude oil. The crash caused a fire, releasing toxic fumes.
