Local law enforcement respond to a multiple vehicle accident

OSSINEKE,Mich.— Michigan State Police responded to a semi-truck accident Tuesday afternoon which left a chemical spill on U-S 23. According to MSP Sergeant Shane Smith, two vehicles were traveling northbound on U-S 23 in Ossineke when the first vehicle stopped to make a turn onto Piper Road.

The driver of a semi–truck traveling in the same direction did not see the stopped cars which resulted in the driver crashing into both vehicles. The semi–truck driver ended up going off the road then swerving back across the center line and into a ditch on the opposite end of the road.

Three tow trucks were needed to pull the semi–trailer from the ditch while a state hazmat team headed the spill clean up. No injuries were reported in the accident.
