GRAND HAVEN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — The northbound lanes of US-31 near Grand Haven were shut down for a few hours Monday after a semi-truck hauling liquid sugar overturned.
The crash happened shortly before 11 a.m. at the intersection of US-31 and Comstock Street in Grand Haven Township, according to an Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office said a 40-year-old Coopersville woman was heading southbound on US-31 when she tried to make a left turn onto eastbound Comstock Street. She was struck by a semi-truck that was hauling liquid sugar.
The semi-truck then rolled on its side and the tanker ruptured, spilling the liquid sugar. A hazmat team was called to the scene to clean up the spill.
The driver of the semi-truck had a green light at Comstock Street when the crash happened, according to the sheriff’s office.
Both drivers were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The northbound lanes of US-31 were closed at Comstock until about 3:30 p.m. while emergency crews were on the scene.
