Truck hauling generator hits MLK bridge on I-43


by Chris Patterson

MILWAUKEE -- Traffic on southbound I-43 was slowed more than 25 minutes after a semi carrying the industrial size generator hit the bridge overpass. Milwaukee County sheriff deputies blocked the right lane from the MLK overpass to the Atkinson and Keefe exit.

We're told the call from the accident came in at 2:18 p.m. Pieces of the generator were left in the median. Crews checked over the generator before slowly moving it off the road.

Department of Transportation engineers will check the bridge to see if any repairs are needed.
