55-year-old straight-truck driver killed in I-90 wreck

A 55-year-old man was killed in a single-vehicle wreck on Interstate 90 Friday morning, officials said.

The Wisconsin State Patrol said troopers responded to multiple reports at 11:36 a.m. of a straight truck that had driven off the eastbound interstate down into right ditch and crashed south of Oakdale near milepost 51 at the Monroe and Juneau county line.

The driver was trapped inside the cab of the vehicle and unresponsive, according to the report. A good Samaritan, who works as a physician’s assistant, stopped at the scene to assist in rendering aid to the man until EMS arrived.

The driver, Vincent A. Luisi, of Arlington, Illinois, didn’t survive and was pronounced dead at the scene by Emergency Medical Services.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. According to the state patrol release, alcohol was not a factor in the crash.

Emergency Medical Services from Oakdale and Camp Douglas responded to the scene of the incident.
