GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Authorities are investigating two separate crashes in which two semi trucks rolled over Friday morning.

The first incident occurred on northbound US-131 on the S-Curve near Market Avenue in downtown Grand Rapids.  It is unknown if anyone was injured.

Some sort of liquid was spilled onto the pavement, and it took city crews more than an hour just to clean up the mess after the semi was removed. The city later issued a statement that explained the liquid was pear syrup.

All lanes were reopened around 6:45 a.m.

On southbound US-131 at I-196, all lanes were cleared and open around 6 a.m.
