CALHOUN COUNTY, Mich. — A man was taken to the hospital after a semi-truck rollover incident early Wednesday morning in Calhoun County.
Deputies from the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office responded just before 4 a.m. to a report of a rolled-over semi-truck on southbound I-69 near the 28 Mile marker, according to a news release.
Upon arrival, they found a southbound tractor trailer had run off the roadway and partially rolled over.
In the process, the truck hit a culvert, causing damage to the structure.
The collision also caused a spill of about 70 gallons of diesel fuel on the bank of Nottawa Creek, according to the sheriff’s office.
The driver, a 53-year-old man from Indiana, was transported to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
Deputies say the fuel spill seemed to have been contained before any water contamination occurred.
