Three people were taken to the hospital Friday after a crash on westbound I-696 at Dequindre Road, police said.

All lanes of westbound I-696 have reopened at Dequindre Road after several lanes were blocked for hours. 

Police said a black Toyota RAV cut off a semi truck, causing the semi driver to slam the brakes. The load shifted on the semi, police said.

The incident caused steel coils to spill onto the freeway and in the cab of the truck.

Two people were taken to the hospital for an evaluation, and a third was taken for a separated shoulder, police said.

Crews were working to clear the scene.
