SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Crews spent around four hours at the scene of an overturned tanker truck on an I-43 on-ramp near Sheboygan Friday afternoon.
Sgt. Doug Tuttle of the Sheboygan Sheriff’s Department said the incident occurred just before 12:20 p.m. on the Highway 28 on-ramp to I-43 southbound. The tanker truck was trying to turn left from the highway to the interstate when it overturned and ended up on its side on the right side of the ramp. The driver suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene.
The truck was carrying around 6,000 gallons of non-toxic waste treatment water, and about 100 gallons spilled from a fill cap into the nearby ditch.
The on-ramp was closed until the truck and waste water was removed. Highway 28 and Interstate 43 did remain open to traffic.
