State Police: Jackknifed semi closes both directions of I-75 in Lincoln Park

LINCOLN PARK (WWJ) -- An update has been released by Michigan State Police Thursday morning about what has had a portion of I-75 tied up since midnight last night.

Officials say the semi truck driver hauling auto parts lost control of the truck near Dix Highway in Lincoln Park late on Wednesday, smashing into the center divider.

The driver then struck two light poles, causing the semi trailer to split and the auto parts to spill onto both the north and southbound sides of I-75.

While crews were cleaning up and repairing a 40-foot part of the wall that was damaged, State Police closed a portion of northbound I-75 at Dix Highway and completely closed southbound I-75 at the M-39 (Southfield Freeway).

According to officials, three vehicles were disabled after running over the spilled auto parts, but no injuries were reported.
