A freeway ramp in the Fowlerville area was closed for hours on Friday while authorities worked to clean up thousands of gallons of spilled milk.

Michigan State Police say a semi-truck hauling milk was exiting from westbound I-96 to Fowlerville Road, traveling too fast, and crashed and overturned shortly before 9am Friday.

A Motor Carrier Officer investigated and the 55-year-old driver of the truck was issued a citation for speeding.

The driver’s injuries did not require medical treatment.

The exit ramp to Fowlerville Road from westbound I-96 was closed for hours while authorities worked to clean up around 12,000 gallons of milk.
