SHELBYVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) - A semi-truck hauling two tankers crashed on U.S. 131 Friday afternoon, shutting down one northbound lane for several hours.
The crash happened around 3 p.m. just south of the Shelbyville exit near mile marker 59, according to the Allegan County Sheriff's Department.
The driver of the northbound semi appears to have suffered a medical condition, the sheriff's department said, which caused him to lose control.
The semi crashed into a wooded area off the side of the road and caught fire. The Wayland and Martin fire departments soon put the fire out.
The driver was taken to a Kalamazoo hospital with a minor head injury.
The two tankers the semi was pulling were empty.
One northbound lane was shut down for several hours.
The crash remains under investigation.
A sheriff's deputy car and a Michigan State Police SUV were among the damaged vehicles.
Broadmoor Avenue has reopened after it was shut down due to a four-vehicle crash in Caledonia.
The extravaganza was Dec. 11, 2013 in downtown Grand Rapids.
