THORNAPPLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A tanker crash led to a manure spill near M-37 just south of Middleville Tuesday.

The crash happened around 2:30 p.m. at Adams Road and M-37 in Thornapple Township, south of Middleville.

The Thornapple Township Fire Department said the tanker was carrying manure from a farm when it tipped over into a ditch, spilling some of its load.

No one was injured, according to firefighters.

Though the crash happened in a ditch, the response led to some traffic backups. Drivers were asked to avoid the area.

Crews were called in to vacuum up the spilled manure. A wrecker also arrived to help right the tanker and clear it from the scene.
