According to Deputy Rob Wendling, the semi-truck was on N. Van Dyke (M-53) south of Bay City-Forestville Road and was carrying a crane extension boom. The load had shifted on the trailer when the driver stopped to avoid a vehicle that was turning into a private drive.
The driver of the semi-truck stated he was enroute from Elkton to Toledo, Ohio to deliver the equipment. The driver contacted Rooney Crane Service out of Bad Axe for assistance.
Once Rooneys were on scene, Sheriff’s Deputies closed M-53 down to one-lane for approximately 2 1/2 hours. Rooneys were able to lift and re-position the crane extension and the driver returned on his way.
No property damage or injuries resulted in the incident.
