Westbound I-696 near Mound Road reopens after accident involving a semi

(WXYZ) - Westbound I-696 near Mound Road has reopened after a semi-truck crashed into the median wall Thursday afternoon.

Police say the driver of the semi reportedly lost control and struck the right median.

The semi driver was ejected out of the passenger window and landed on the grass. The driver was taken to Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital with minor injuries.

Cleanup crews worked to clear fuel that spilled from the truck. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor. The driver was not wearing a seatbelt.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
