Semi gets stuck in Wausau, blocking road

Posted: Updated:
WAUSAU (WAOW) - A semi got stuck on 25th Street in the Town of Wausau, blocking traffic for a time.

This happened just before 6:20 p.m. Friday, according to the Marathon County Sheriff's Department. No one was hurt.

Sheriff's officers said the truck slowed down while going up a hill on 25th Street, and when the truck tried to speed up, the wheels spun on sand leftover from the winter, causing the truck to angle.

Traffic was blocked for an hour and a half, but sheriff's officers say it's running again.
