Truck spills load of glue on Michigan roadway after being cut off, troopers say


Michigan State Police (MSP) say that Monday cargo spill was caused by a vehicle cutting off a truck.

The crash occurred on April 24 in Lyon Township, Michigan.

“The driver of a semi was traveling west [on] I-96 at Milford when he allegedly was cut off by another driver and lost control of his truck.  He veered right, hitting the metal barrier and getting stuck on top of it,” MSP said.

The crash caused the truck to spill its load of glue.

The glue spill is considered a hazmat situation, according to the Lyon Township Fire Department.

“MDOT will need to look at the damage to the guard rail/barrier to ensure the right lane will be safe to open once the truck is removed and clean up for the glue is completed.  At this time, there is no estimate for re-opening the freeway. Traffic is currently being diverted off at Milford Rd. and can re-enter at Kensington Rd,” state troopers said.
