The Michigan State Police Metro Post is investigating a traffic crash that occurred on October 31, 2013 at 2:36 PM at westbound I 696 and Mound Road in the City of Warren.

Witnesses reported that a semi-truck was traveling west on I-696 near Mound Road when the driver lost control of the vehicle and struck the right median wall. The driver of the semi was ejected out the passenger window of the semi-truck and landed on the grass. The truck continued westbound and struck the center median wall.

The driver of the semi was transported to Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital with minor injuries.

The freeway was closed for hours, until shortly after 10 p.m., to allow for fuel spill cleanup.

State troopers are continuing to investigate the incident. It does not appear that alcohol is a factor and seatbelts were not utilized.

No other vehicles were involved and no other injuries were reported.

  • Basil farm ready to switch to marijuana

    Basil farm ready to switch to marijuana

    Friday, April 18 2014 4:11 PM EDT2014-04-18 20:11:50 GMT
    Basil plants grow on a New Jersey farm, but the facility could be turned into a five-acre medical marijuana greenhouse with only 48 hours' notice. The hoses from the state-of-the-art Dutch hydroponic system are watering flowers now, but with a few minor adjustments could just as easily grow marijuana plants for medicinal cannabis. The only reason it's not happening now is because the company is publicly traded and subject to federal law.
