A press release from the Marathon County Sheriff's Department confirms a semi tractor-trailer crashed early Friday morning on I-39 northbound just north of milemarker 185 exit in Rothschild.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

The truck driver sustained minor injuries, and was transported to Aspirus Wausau Hospital Emergency Room by SAFER ambulance for treatment.

I-39 northbound has been shut down since the time of the crash, and northbound traffic diverted to Business 51. Truck towing crews and the Marathon County Highway Department are still working to remove the truck and its trailer.

The Marathon County Sheriff’s Department warns road conditions will continue to be hazardous during the day Friday and into the evening, with rapidly changing road conditions. Motorists should avoid travel if possible during this time period and exercise caution if travel is necessary.
