Detroit — The exit ramp off southbound Interstate 75 has reopened at Interstate 96 in Detroit after a semitrailer overturned, authorities said.

The crash on Interstate 75 at Interstate 96 in Detroit closed southbound lanes on I-75, transportation officials said Monday evening.

The crash caused the semitrailer to leak about 50 gallons of fuel, according to the Michigan Department of Transportation. 

The department was notified of the crash at 6:15 p.m. The ramp reopened by 9 p.m., according to the department.

MDOT asked Wayne County to turn off their pump houses by the crash so that the fuel leak doesn't get into county's water system.
