May 23, 2022 – County Highway P in Dodge County is now open as of about 11:35 a.m. on Monday, May 23, 2022. The area between County Highway NP and Butler Road, just north of Rubicon was closed following a crash around 8 a.m. as a northbound passenger car crossed over the centerline and struck a southbound dump truck which was loaded with aggregate.
Two passenger cars that were stopped on the side of the road in the area were also struck. The dump truck overturned, and the load of aggregate was covering the highway.
The occupant of the dump truck, a 42-year-old Rubicon man, was transported by ambulance with possible serious injuries. The driver of the passenger car, a 55-year-old Palmyra woman was transported with non-life-threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported.
The Dodge County Highway Department will remain on scene for approximately 2-3 more hours while the rock aggregate is removed from the right of way. Flaggers will remain in the area to keep traffic moving and the workers safe.
Patients were still being evaluated at hospitals, but none of the injuries are believed to be serious or life threatening.
The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by Wisconsin State Patrol Inspectors, Hartford Fire and EMS, the Dodge County Highway Department and the township of Rubicon.
