All lanes of northbound Interstate 75 at Caniff in Hamtramck have reopened nearly six hours after they were shut down after a semi truck rolled over onto a passenger vehicle and snarled traffic, officials said.

The crash happened sometime around 8:40 a.m.

Michigan State Police said it appears a sports utility vehicle was slowing down in the right lane of I-75 and the truck driver was unable to stop. The semi struck the median wall, went up the embankment and rolled on top of the SUV.

Officials said the SUV's driver was pinned in the vehicle and was rescued by Hamtramck firefighters.

The motorist sustained minor injuries to the lower part of a leg and the truck's driver suffered minor injuries, according to state police. Both have been transported to a hospital.
