Some of U.S. 30 reopened Friday afternoon, more than 12 hours after a tanker truck crashed spilling chemicals.

It happened around midnight near U.S. 30 and Oak Road in Plymouth.

Workers at Wal-Mart complained of headaches and dizziness and were told to go home.

Drivers were detoured away from Queen and Michigan Street, causing quite a stir.

One woman says traffic was a nightmare.

Sandra Bush says, "Oh my god, there were semi after semis and cars and everything trying to go every which way and they'd go there, go there, go this way. They were directing them all over."

The driver of the tanker suffered minor injuries and was airlifted to a local hospital.

Police reopened reopened both westbound lanes Friday afternoon and one eastbound lane.

The other eastbound lane won't be reopened until it's repaved early next week.
