Highway 73 closed more than 3 hours during semi rollover investigation

TOWN OF CALAMUS, Wis. - Highway 73 was closed more than three hours Monday afternoon as crews investigated a rollover crash involving a semitractor-trailer, Dodge County sheriff's deputies said.

The Dodge County Sheriff's Office responded around 1 p.m. to the crash on Highway 73 north of County Road FW in the town of Calamus, according to a release.

William J. Mason, 59, of Stevens Point, was driving a 2007 semitractor-trailer south on Highway 73, investigators said. As Mason approached a curve in the road, the semi went onto the right gravel shoulder and started sliding in a counter-clockwise direction as it went back onto the highway.

The tractor-trailer rolled onto its passenger side and slid south on Highway 73, according to the release. The tractor-trailer stopped facing east, entirely blocking both lanes of Highway 73 for over three hours.

The trailer contained appliances, officials said.

Mason suffered minor injuries in the crash and was taken to Beaver Dam Hospital by Randolph EMS, according to the release.
