A Cuba City man was injured and arrested after his truck struck an oncoming truck on State Highway 11 Saturday night, according to the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were called to an area of Highway 11 in the town of Shullsburg at 6:29 p.m. for a report of a two-vehicle crash.

Investigators said a truck driven by G. Patrick Zwiefel, 50, of Orfordville was traveling east on Highway 11 when it was struck by a westbound truck driven by Joshua C. Scott, 31. Both trucks drove a short distance before stopping on the eastbound shoulder.

Scott was treated for injuries but refused medical transport. He was arrested on suspicion of third-offense operating while intoxicated and failure to have control.

The Shullsburg Police Department, Shullsburg Fire Department, and Shullsburg EMS assisted at the scene.
