NEENAH, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Wednesday afternoon just after 1:15 p.m. the Wisconsin State Patrol responded to a crash on I-41 south in Winnebago County near Neenah.

According to state troopers, a car was stopped in the right lane of I-41 south waiting for a family of ducks to cross the freeway. Another car had also stopped on the right shoulder of I-41.

A dump truck driving south swerved onto the shoulder to avoid crashing into the car stopped in the traffic lane and ended up crashing into the car stopped on the shoulder causing substantial damage to the car and serious, but non-life threatening injuries to the driver. 

All three lanes of I-41 south closed while first responders assessed the scene. The freeway opened after 25 minutes.
