Everyone managed to climb out of their vehicles after a semi and Ford pickup rolled over on eastbound I-94 near Rawsonville Road at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11.
Van Buren Police officers and fire fighters found that everyone involved had managed to climb out of their vehicles and were tended by HVA paramedics.
Fire Chief Dan Besson said a semi tractor-trailer and a full-size Ford pickup truck were involved in the incident and both had rolled over into the I-94 median.
Several eye-witnesses, including an off-duty VBT fire fighter/emergency medical technician stopped to help those involved in the crash moments after it occurred.
Because of the hazards caused by the accident, firefighters were forced to close down two lanes of I-94 in order to establish a safe work area.
All three occupants refused to be transported by HVA to the hospital, but one patient, a 32-year-old Livonia man, was transported by a family member for evaluation. He complained of sharp rib pain that occurred while climbing out of the semi.
Firefighters remained on the scene until the vehicles were safely removed and all lanes could be reopened. The last fire unit cleared at 6:02 p.m., Besson said
