By Arica Frisbey of Sanilac Broadcasting

No injuries were reported following a traffic accident in Ellington Township on Tuesday, September 13, that saw a semi-truck overturn while traveling on Deckerville Road.

The 2016 Kenworth semi truck was being driven east around 3:16 p.m. by a 29-year-old Pinconning man and carrying 50 tons of salt between the two trailers, when a white pickup truck heading west entered the semi’s lane. The semi driver attempted to avoid the pickup by swerving, but instead, the vehicle lost control as the rear trailer jack-knifed. The semi truck entered the south ditch and overturned, losing its cargo as the pickup truck continued on.
