Semi rollover closes ramp from I-39/90 southbound to Beltline heading into Madison, authorities say

{{featured_button_text}}

A semi rollover shortly before 5 a.m. Tuesday closed the ramp from I-39/90 southbound to the westbound Beltline (Highway 12/18) heading into Madison until about 6:30 a.m., authorities reported.

The State Patrol was notified at 4:51 a.m. of a crash involving a semi loaded with dairy products that rolled over at the beginning of the ramp.

The Madison Fire Department reported that Engine Co. 14 deployed water and foam on a small amount of fire discovered in the semi's engine compartment.

Meanwhile, Ladder Co. 8 removed the windshield and cut away the steering wheel to free the driver pinned inside. The driver then was removed and taken to the hospital.

The State Patrol said the Dane County Highway Department needed to do a road sweep before reopening the ramp lanes and there was a significant traffic backup before the ramp reopened.

The latest travel information is available on the Internet at www.511wi.gov or by calling 511.
