Crash Damages Bridge… Closes I-41 For Five Hours

A dump truck driver was unknowingly driving with the bed of her truck lifted in the raised position when it struck a bridge overpass as she was driving south on Interstate 41 near Appleton shortly after 11 this morning.

The Rose Hill road overpass sustained significant damage and caused southbound I-41 to remain closed until 4:45 PM today while DOT investigators checked the damage to the bridge. While the interstate is back open this afternoon, the bridge will remain closed through at least Monday of next week.

It is unknown if the dump truck driver was injured in the crash.
