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.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
