6 hours 24 minutes ago

A semi truck carrying canisters containing hazardous material has turned over on Interstate 75 Northbound just after 6 p.m. Friday.

The accident happened around mile marker 113. A police officer was assisting a motorist when the truck crashed into a police cruiser, causing the truck to flip to its side.

The material in the canisters has not been identified at this time. No one was trapped but one officer and a woman were both taken to a local hospital.

Police have closed all northbound and will be shut down for several hours. Police are advising drivers to get off at 111 before being faced with a detour at 113.

Police had advised a shelter in place procedure for residents off Lisa Drive, Mona Court and Mimi and Carla Streets, but that was lifted around 10:30 p.m.
