An overturned semitrailer resulted in injuries for the driver and a three-hour

The Rock County
Sheriff’s Office said the semi was traveling west on Highway 81 west of County
Road H in the town of Newark when the 65-year-old driver failed to negotiate a
curve. The semi traveled into a ditch, struck a field access and overturned,
according to deputies.
The driver was taken
to Beloit Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

to be a factor but the driver was cited on suspicion of failing to maintain
