A driver was taken to the hospital for a complete evaluation after he slammed on the brakes of his dump truck and veered toward a ditch to avoid a collision after the vehicle in front of him stopped abruptly, a release said.

The Madison Fire Department was dispatched to westbound Interstate 90 at 2:03 p.m. The truck initially came to a rest on the edge of the highway, but the uneven ground caused it to turn onto its side.

This pinned the driver inside. A passerby climbed in to help the driver to a sitting position.

Engine Company 14 helped the driver out of the truck. He did not suffer life-threatening injuries.
