Serious Injuries In Gravel Hauler Crash In Shelby Township

SHELBY TWP. (WWJ) – Police remain on the scene of an accident involving two double bottom gravel haulers in Shelby Township.

According to Shelby Township Police Lt. Jeff Daniel, both truck drivers suffered multiple injuries in the crash, just after noon Tuesday, on Ryan Road south of 22 Mile Road — some of them serious.
