AUBURN HILLS (WWJ) – A big mess along I-75 in Oakland County may sound gross, but it’s no danger to public health, according to police.
Northbound I-75 is reduced to two lanes near the Chrysler Dr. exit, north of M-59, due to overturned semi truck hauling trailers carrying solid human waste.
Auburn Hills police said the trailers lost their loads on the freeway, but stressed that this is “treated human waste,” so it’s not a hazardous materials situation.
The crash happened at around 10 a.m. A company has been called in to clean up the spill, police said.
No one was injured and the cause of the crash remained under investigation.
Drivers should expect backups.
