MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Slick roads on Saturday morning, Jan. 11 caused a City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works truck to crash on Saturday morning, Jan. 11. The driver was taken to the hospital 

The incident happened just before 9 a.m., as the truck was traveling southbound on 114th Street, north of Mill Road. 

DPW officials say 114th is a major curving road and the slick pavement were factors in the crash.
