GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A milk tanker crashed going around the infamous Grand Rapids S-curve on northbound US-131.

Michigan State troopers had to shut down all but one lane to get the rig back upright and out of the way. The milk requires hazmat cleanup as it's harmful to fish in nearby waterways. They tell FOX 17 the highway was shut down between Wealthy Street and Market Avenue until before 2 p.m.

An alternate route was suggested until the road reopened.

MSP lists speed as the possible cause and the driver wasn't hurt.
