UPDATE: Crash cleaned up in Marathon County


A logging truck flipped on its side Friday evening, blocking traffic and sending one person to the hospital.

It happened in Marathon County on County Highway J near East Tower Road, east of Wausau. Marathon County Sheriff's officials say a car had stopped for deer on Highway J when the logging truck tried to go around, flipping on its side. Logs from the truck hit a third car.

A pregnant woman was taken to the hospital as a precaution. Officials said no one else was hurt.

Logs were scattered on the road. Traffic on Highway J was blocked as crews cleaned up the mess, but a Marathon County dispatcher told Newsline 9 traffic is moving again.
