LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Police say the situation is under control after a truck carrying sulfuric acid overturned on the northbound lanes of US-23.

The crash happened Tuesday morning near the 9200 block of Runyan Lake Road in Tyrone Township which is south of Fenton.

First responders say that the acid was contained, and they called in specialized hazmat teams who could transfer the acid to safe containers before the truck was removed.

State police did evacuate some homes nearby during the cleanup process as the tanker was turned right-side-up.
