DEARBORN, Mich. – Some northbound and all southbound lanes were closed Monday morning on Southfield Freeway in Dearborn after a semi truck crashed through a median.

Officials say a semi truck went through a median wall on Southfield Freeway near Michigan Avenue on Monday. The truck reportedly jackknifed -- meaning the truck’s cab and trailer folded in on itself at the point where they connect.

The lanes have since reopened to traffic.

No additional details regarding the incident have been released at this time. It is still unclear if any other vehicles were involved.
