TOWN OF BEAVER DAM, Wis. - One person was injured in a crash Monday afternoon involving a semitrailer loaded with beer in Dodge County, officials said.
Dodge County sheriff’s deputies were sent around 12:20 p.m. to a single-vehicle crash involving a semitrailer on the interchange ramps to and from Highway 151 at County Road G in the town of Beaver Dam, according to a release.
The semi was northbound on Highway 151, officials said. When it exited at the off ramp to County Road G, it failed to stop at the stop sign at the top of the ramp, crossed County Road G and left the roadway adjacent to the on ramp to Highway 151 northbound.
No other vehicles were involved in the crash, according to the release.
The driver of the semi, 62-year-old Chanakira Goodwill, of Durham, North Carolina, was taken to a hospital for possible injuries, officials said.
The semitrailer was loaded with Coors beer, but none of the load spilled, according to the release. A small amount of diesel fuel may have leaked from the truck’s fuel tanks. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources was notified.
The crash remains under investigation, officials said. A possible medical issue with the driver is being investigated as a cause in the crash.
The on ramp to Highway 151 northbound from County Road G was closed around 2 p.m. Monday, and will remain closed through the evening, officials said.
