The gravel truck that went into the Detroit River to remove sand from a roadway is now stuck.
“I didn’t see it coming,” said Wayne County Prosecutor Steve Bagley.
The truck, a Diamondback, ran into a concrete barrier that was part of a gravel road.
The barrier was about two feet high and about 10 feet wide.
The truck went under the barrier and the barrier broke off.
The truck was loaded with dirt and debris and the concrete barrier fell to the river.
The gravel was sucked up by the river and carried downstream to the railroad tracks.
The concrete barrier was crushed, sending it into the river, according to the Michigan Department of Transportation.
A local water treatment company said they will try to remove the debris.
They will be using shovels and hand tools.
