SHEBOYGAN - Law enforcement had to close a freeway ramp Tuesday after a semi tractor-trailer carrying 20 tons of cheese fell on its side.
The crash happened at about 5:45 p.m. on the ramp from northbound I-43 to Highway 23.
The driver, 61, was slightly hurt. Investigators say he was driving too quickly for the cloverleaf ramp, and the load of cheese shifted inside the truck, leading to the crash.
Sheboygan Police say crews unloaded the cheese onto another truck before they put the semi back on its wheels.
