At around 5:00 a.m. this morning, a tractor-trailer tipped over just north of Lansing, Michigan, on I-96. The truck spilled 22 gallons of diesel fuel and blocked the roadway for over two hours, causing two additional cars to collide with it. Fortunately, all persons involved in the collision were unharmed.
Bill Conklin of the Ingham County Road Commission stated that "[w]e really don’t have the budget to keep the roads clear and bone dry and free from slippery spots into the wee morning, so we cover, during the night, our busy spots, but we don’t cover every road all night long." This is causing fear in many Michigan drivers and many are bracing for a cold, icy and dangerous winter ahead.
