Semi Roll Shuts Down Highway Sunday

Written by
High winds knocked over a semi-tractor trailer going down the highway during a thunder storm in western Wisconsin's Trempealeau County Sunday.

The Trempealeau County Sheriff's Department says the resulting crash left the semi stretched across a bridge, causing the closure of State Road 93 between Eau Claire and La Crosse for about two and a half hours Sunday afternoon.  The driver of the semi sustained minor injuries but refused treatment. His truck's trailer unit was empty.

Parts of southern Minnesota and western Wisconsin are forecast to possibly suffer severe weather Sunday night into Memorial Day.

POT DOWN.................TALK OVER

As the La Crosse Central robed choir sings, I Love My Country, veterans and members of the La Crosse Community remember those who have lost their lives serving our country and the vets who are still here with us. The Memorial Day observance doesn’t just bring vets closer together, it’s a community event with a long standing tradition. 90 years now. And it's been a tradition for La Crosse School Board member, Dave Rudolph.



There will be a Memorial Day parade in downtown La Crosse on Monday starting at 9 a.m. It will start on King and 5th streets and go to the Oak Grove Cemetery.

Charges made against the La Crosse county administrator will get a public hearing this summer...

No date has been set, but the county ethics board has agreed to hear arguments that Steve O'Malley illegally used his position of power to promote the city administrator referendum defeated last month in La Crosse. O'Malley believes his activities aimed at getting La Crosse voters to support the position of administrator were proper. Ethics board chairman Rick Kyte says it's possible that just one hearing will be needed to decide whether O'Malley broke any laws.
