Farm tractor, semi collide on crowded bridge

Posted:

GALLOWAY (WAOW) – A farm tractor pulling tillage equipment and a semi-truck collided on a bridge Tuesday because there was not enough room for both to pass safely, the Wisconsin State Patrol said.

No one was hurt, but state Highway 49 just south of Galloway in southeast Marathon County was closed for about two hours, dispatcher Brent Weiland said.

Tuesday morning's heavy rain may have contributed to the crash because visibility was reduced, Weiland said.

The bridge suffered some damage but the highway reopened about 10 a.m., he said.
