FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Sgt. Brian Murphree with the Flint Police Department tells TV5 that two ramps have now re-opened following an accident.

The east and westbound I-69 ramps to northbound I-475 in Flint were closed due to an overturned semi. The accident happened about 10:30 a.m., according to the Michigan Department of Transportation, and Sgt. Murphree says they re-opened at 1 p.m.

Flint Police tell TV5 that the semi exceeded height restrictions for the overpass, and the truck tipped.

No one was hurt, but the driver does face a citation.

The Michigan Department of Transportation inspected the bridge, and found no structural damage, although there are a few visual scrapes.
