Semi spills canned goods on I-94

CALHOUN COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Spilled canned goods were creating a driving hazard for motorists on I-94 Monday morning in Calhoun County.

Shortly after 8:00 a semi overturned on eastbound I-94 at the 116 mile marker. Its load of canned goods spilled over both eastbound and westbound lanes of traffic.

Police say that the driver lost control near mile marker 116. He was carrying 3,800 pounds of canned tomatoes. The doors to the truck flew open, scattering the cans across the freeway.

A passing motorist had their vehicle hit by some of the cans.

The driver of the semi was going from California to Ontario. He said that he had heard weather reports but the road conditions were worse than he expected.
