U.S. 23 in Monroe County closed due to rollover accident

A small stretch of U.S. 23 South is closed near the Ohio border after a rollover accident involving a church van carrying up to nine passengers, police said.

All the van occupants were taken by ambulance to Toledo area hospitals for treatment of their injuries. Traffic is being routed off the freeway in Monroe County's Whiteford Township near U.S. 223, pending the accident investigation.

Police think the driver of the Toledo-based church van fell asleep at the wheel around 3:30 p.m., said Michigan State Police Sgt. Bryan Sparks.

The van weaved from the right shoulder, then to the left and eventually rolled over. Meanwhile, another two-vehicle accident occurred around the same time that further complicated the commute for motorists. No injuries were reported in that crash.

The freeway is expected to reopen later today.

A non-response doesn't mean you've won, it merely means the obnoxious, illiterate, right-wing morons have taken too much of my time already.

It happened yesterday at around 3:30, so it should be cleared up by now.
