Truck driver escapes serious injury when semi overturns on Jackson Avenue

A driver escaped serious injury when a truck overturned near the intersection of Jackson and Maple roads in Ann Arbor Friday afternoon.
The accident created major traffic tie-ups in the area, although the road has now been cleared, according to Ann Arbor police.
Jackson Avenue was closed for several hours, and so was the exit ramp from westbound I-94 to Jackson, Ann Arbor police Lt. Angella Abrams said. The truck was towed away and the area was reopened to traffic around 5:35 p.m.
The driver was initially reported trapped in the cab, and information on his condition was not available early this evening.
The accident was reported shortly before 2:30 p.m., and occurred when the driver "had trouble navigating a turn,'' Abrams said.
