Westnedge Ave in Kalamazoo was closed for several hours today following an accident that involved an overturned tanker.

According to Mlive,

Officers were seen arresting a man at the scene, but did not say if he was the driver of a car that apparently crossed the centerline of the road, triggering the mishap.

Officers said neither alcohol nor speed appear to be a factor in the crash. But the incident is being investigated.

The tanker truck was carrying a non-hazardous material, Diaz said. He said it was carrying a form of Milk of Magnesia (an antacid made with magnesium hydroxide).

All 4 lanes of Westnedge is expected to be closed for most of Wednesday evening.  If you have photos or video of the accident you would like to share with you can do so on the 103.3 KFR Facebook page by clicking here.
