Semi crashes in Dodge County



May 23, 2017 – Township of Beaver Dam, WI – At about 12:19 p.m. on Monday, May 22 the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a single-vehicle traffic crash involving a semi tractor-trailer on the interchange ramps to and from US Highway (USH) 151 at County Highway (CTH) G, in the Township of Beaver Dam.

The semi was northbound on USH 151 and exited at the off-ramp to CTH G, failed to stop at the stop sign at the top of the ramp, crossed CTH G and left the roadway adjacent to the on-ramp to USH 151 northbound.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

The operator of the semi, Chanakira Goodwill, 62, from Durham, North Carolina, was transported by EMS to a local hospital for a possible injury and/or medical condition.

The box trailer was loaded with Coors beer, and there was no spillage of load found.  A small amount of diesel fuel may have leaked from the fuel tanks and the WI Department of Natural Resources (DNR) was notified.

The crash remains under investigation, and a possible medical issue with the driver is being investigated as a possible cause in the crash.  The truck was owned by Berg Grain and Produce INC, Fargo, North Dakota.

The on-ramp to USH 151 northbound from CTH G remained closed since shortly after 2 p.m. Monday while the semi was removed and towed from the scene.
