Driver misses stop sign; two semi-trucks crash

Posted:
JUNCTION CITY (WAOW) – The driver of a semi-truck drove through a stop sign and crashed into the trailer of another semi-truck, the Portage County Sheriff's Department said Friday.

Neither driver was seriously injured, Deputy Travis Levandowski said.

The crash, which happened about 1 p.m., smashed the front of one semi and ripped the rear axle off the trailer of the other semi, he said.

The driver of the semi traveling eastbound on County Highway P told investigators he didn't see the stop sign at the intersection with state Highway 13-34, Levandowski said.

That driver was from Texas and hit a truck from Black River Falls, the deputy said. One truck was loaded with cargo and the trailer that was hit was empty.
