A truck carrying 40,000 pounds of corn overturned on Interstate 41 connecting Milwaukee to Green Bay, shutting down the southbound highway.

Authorities in Wisconsin warned the public at 8:52 PM local time to be cautious if traveling on the interstate 41 highway, as the truck was blocking several lanes. An update one hour later stated that all southbound lanes were closed while cleanup crews attempted to clear the accident debris.

The interstate 41 highway connects Milwaukee with Green Bay as it travels west of Lake Winnebago. The truck was carrying around 40,000 pounds of corn when it overturned on Thursday night. The unidentified driver of the tractor-trailer suffered minor injuries in the accident. There were no reports of any corn spillage on the road.
The cause of the rollover is still under investigation, according to police. This truck rollover comes a day after a tractor-trailer overturned a guardrail on the interstate 287 in Westchester County, New York, in an accident that killed the driver.

Last Saturday, strong winds overturned a truck on the Golden Gate Bridge, forcing authorities to close both sides of the iconic California landmark to clear the accident.
In early December, another truck overturned on an overpass and landed in another car accident in California. This incident highlights the importance of proper truck maintenance and driver training to ensure the safety of all travelers on the road.
