WISCONSIN RAPIDS (WAOW) - A Wisconsin Rapids road is closed after a semi carrying a full load of logs tips over and dumps the logs.

Wisconsin Rapids Police Lieutenant Steve Lowe says it happened at about 6:30PM Thursday when a 34 year old driver tipped the semi.

The driver was extracted from the truck and taken to Riverview Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Police believe speed was a factor in the accident.  No other vehicles were involved.

The roundabout  on 17th Avenue South/Gaynor Ave in Wisconsin Rapids was narrowed to one lane for three hours.

The 1800 block of Gaynor Ave. was still closed at 10pm while it's being cleaned up.
