DETROIT (WXYZ) — A flipped tanker has closed eastbound I-94 at the ramp to Gratiot in Detroit.

The 7,000 gallon tanker flipped Sunday afternoon after the driver began traveling too fast, according to Michigan State Police.

Officials say the only leak came from the saddle tanks. It's currently a hazmat level 1 situation, according to officials, and pollution control is on the scene.

The driver refused medical treatment at the scene, officials say.
