FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (WJBK) -

An overturned tractor-trailer carrying groceries slowed traffic Thursday morning as it blocked the ramp from I-96 to eastbound I-696.

The accident, which involved a Meijer truck, happened around 4 a.m.

Another semi was called in so crews could salvage some of the groceries before removing the truck from the freeway.

Investigators are now looking for a black Chevrolet Impala that may have caused the crash. Reports say the driver of the car cut off the truck, forcing the truck driver to lose control.
