GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A rollover crash made a lot of people late for work Tuesday morning.

A single car rolled in the wide median on westbound I-196 just west of where the highway splits from westbound I-196 around 6:45 a.m. A medical unit was called, but there was no indication any injuries were serious.

But emergency units blocked the left lane, and I-96 westbound backed up with stop-and-go traffic all the way to Cascade Road.

The scene was cleared around 7:37 a.m., but the traffic jam lingered for a while.
