Crash injures 3, sends 40,000 lbs of cheese into pond

 State Highway 33 was closed for more than three hours Wednesday evening as crews in Dodge County responded to a truck vs. semi crash there.

The Dodge County Sheriff's Office says the pickup truck driven by 36-year-old Bradley A. Strobel of Neosho rolled through the intersection of Hwy 33 and Hwy P in the township of Herman when it was struck by a semi driven by John P. Wiseman of Bell Fountain, OH.  Wiseman's rig, which was carrying 40,000 pounds of cheese, overturned into a nearby pond.  Diesel from the truck also spilled into the pond.

Bradley Strobel suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Hartford Hospital initially, and later transferred to Froedtert in Milwaukee.  His passenger, David A. Strobel, 67, also of Neosho, sustained life-threatening injuries and was flown to Froedtert Hospital.  Wiseman was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at St. Joe's Hospital in West Bend.

The crash remains under investigation by the Dodge County Crash Investigation Team.
