MILWAUKEE -- A semi driver received two citations after a crash involving a tow truck on I-43, north of Layton Monday, Aug. 26.

It happened shortly after 11 a.m.

Officials with the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office said the tow truck driver was on the scene of a separate crash when the semi, headed southbound through the Mitchell Interchange, struck the tow truck.

The semi's cab separated from its base after the impact, and the trailer flipped on its side, blocking all three lanes of traffic.

The tow truck slammed into the wall, and the driver was trapped in the cab. He was extricated and taken to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
