An early morning rollover on US131 near 17 Mile Road tied up traffic Tuesday for about an hour and a half.
According to Michigan State Police Trooper Miller, a couple from Kalamazoo stopped on the side of northbound US131 early Tuesday morning, October 6. When they attempted to pull their suburban and trailer back on to the highway about 7:04 a.m., they pulled in front of a van in the right lane. The couple then spun around and lost control, rolling both their suburban and trailer. The van also ran off the right side of the road. Another vehicle ran over some debris, damaging their oil pan.
The right lane of travel was closed, and they completely shut down northbound US131 a couple of minutes at a time while righting the vehicles.
Trooper Miller said there were only minor injuries, such as cuts, and no one was transported to the hospital. “It could have been a lot more serious,” he said.
The Cedar Springs Police Department, Cedar Springs Fire and Rescue, Solon Fire and Rescue, and Rockford Ambulance all assisted at the scene.
The scene was cleared at 8:30 a.m.
