Overturned Landscaping Truck Snarls Traffic On Mound Road

WARREN (WWJ) – A landscaping truck has flipped over and spilled its load of dirt across Mound Road in Warren.

The accident happened around 7 a.m. Thursday on northbound Mound Road just north of I-696.

While it wasn’t immediately clear what caused the truck to overturn, it is causing a traffic situation in the area. Dirt has spilled across the two left lanes and into the median on Mound Road.

Traffic is getting by in the right lane only on northbound Mound Road. Gawker delays are also being reported on southbound Mound Road.

It is unclear when the road will fully reopen.
