BRIDGEPORT, MI (WNEM) -

TV5 has received word that a jackknifed semi truck has reduced Dixie Highway down the one lane in each direction in Saginaw County.

The accident happened around 11 a.m. Tuesday morning near I-75 in Bridgeport.

The truck was heading southbound on I-75 when witnesses began seeing objects falling off of the truck's trailer. The truck then exited at the Bridgeport exit and when attempting to turn right, the trailer broke and spilled the contents onto the roadway.

The truck was hauling tires. No other vehicles were involved in the crash. The driver of the truck was unharmed.

Officials are asking drivers to avoid the area, if possible. It is also unclear how long the lane closures will remain in effect.
