Two Oakland County road workers were injured on Wednesday morning when a vehicle hit the truck they were working with.

According to the Road Commission for Oakland County, the crash happened after 8 a.m. on M-5 near the Drake Rd. overpass.

We're told the crew was preparing to do some work on M-5 when a vehicle hit the truck and the truck flipped on impact. The crews were doing forestry work along the road.

There were no fatalities, but two road workers were taken to the hospital with injuries. The injures are not life-threatening.

The road commission is asking people to slow down and keep their eyes on the road when driving.
