Interstate Semi Crash Backup

MADISON, Wis. — Interstate 39/90/94 north of the Highway 151 interchange has reopened after an overturned truck blocked traffic for a little over an hour.

The crash caused significant traffic delays backing up as far south as the Highway 30 interstate interchange.

Officials with Wisconsin’s Department of Transportation said the truck crashed around 11:45 a.m. at mile marker 135; the wreckage was cleared shortly after 1 p.m. All lanes have since reopened.

Authorities with the Wisconsin State Patrol managed the response. Initial reports said the vehicle was a semi-truck, but a State Patrol dispatcher later said that was not the case.

It’s unclear if the truck driver or any others were injured in the crash.
