LANSING, Mich. — A semi-truck accident has made travel difficult for those on I-96 at Pennsylvania in Lansing.

The incident happened at 1:15 p.m. on Feb. 17, according to the Lansing Police Department.

Police say the semi-truck turned on its side and slid off the road.

A female driver with minor injuries was taken to a local hospital.

Police said speed appears to have played a factor in the accident.

Shroyer Towing was able to lift the truck off its side.

"We used air cushions to help support the trailer so we can bring it up in once piece so we don't have to unload it and it was a win," said Dan Shroyer, of Shroyer Towing.

The ramp to Pennsylvania Avenue from westbound I-96 is back open.
