Semi-Truck Driver Chokes On Fruit & Crashes on I-96
A semi-truck driver made it out luckily, and probably thankfully, after choking on some fruit he was eating, which then caused him to crash his rig on West Bound I-96 near M-100. The accident happened just before 7 a.m. on Friday, April 30th.
"Lansing Post troopers on scene at I-96 W/B near M-100 for a semi truck crash that occurred at 6:57 am. Driver of the semi truck advised he was eating a piece of fruit and began choking, then ran off the roadway into the ditch. No injuries occurred." From the MSP First District Twitter Page.
West Bound I-96 had the right lane closed at the time of the incident so the semi-truck could be removed.
At this time, the name of the business the truck had been hauling for is still unannounced.
It looks like extensive damage was caused to the cab of the truck, which you can see below, from the MSP First District Twitter account.
Michigan State Police were helped at the incident by Clinton County Sheriff's Office, Looking Glass Fire Department as well as the Delta fire department, according to WILX.
