UPDATE AT 4:05 P.M. (WZZM) -- Deputies have reopened the M-37 - M-46 junction following an accident.

Crews have cleared the Great Lakes Energy truck that overturned while turning to north on M-37.

CASNOVIA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- A truck that overturned in the M-37 / M-46 junction has shut down traffic at the roundabout.

The accident happened around 2:30 p.m. in Casnovia Township.

Investigators say a Great Lakes Energy truck was turning right to go north on M-37 when it turned onto its side, blocking one of the northbound lanes out of the roundabout.  No one was hurt in the accident and no word on the cause of the crash. 

Muskegon County Sheriff's deputies are re-routing traffic to avoid the roundabout while crews work to put the truck back on its wheels. Investigators say they hope to have the junction reopened within the next hour.

The junction is a busy intersection with east-west traffic between Muskegon and Cedar Springs on M-46 meeting the north-south traffic between Grand Rapids and Newaygo on M-37.
