A man was killed and part of M-60 in Cass County is closed after a fuel tanker overturned on the road.

Several homes in the area of M-60 and Pine Lake Street were evacuated as a precaution because about 7,000 gallons of fuel leaked onto the road, according to our news partners ABC 57. The truck was carrying about 13,000 gallons of fuel total.

Foam has been sprayed along the roadway.

The crash happened on M-60 where it curves at Pine Lake Street at about 3 a.m.

The driver of the tanker died at the scene and has not yet been identified.

Drivers should avoid the area of M-60 between Leet and Dailey roads, as the closure is expected to last for several hours.
