LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – A truck hauling gravel rolled over on US-127 just before the Saginaw exit, blocking all traffic and shutting down the highway for hours.

The crash happened just before noon when the double-bottomed truck, which is a semi-truck pulling two trailers, rolled over and spilled a load of gravel across the road.

As of 2:00 p.m. the clean-up continued with front-end loaders trying to scoop the gravel off the road.

Northbound US-127 travel is blocked at I-496 until further notice.

Investigators have not determined what led to the crash, although there was an earlier crash on the road at the Saginaw entrance to US-127 that had blocked traffic.

This story is continuing to develop and will be updated when more information becomes available.
