      Police: Slushy roads lead to crash involving semi truck

      The Delta County Sheriff's Department responded to the scene of a semi crash on US-2/41 near the NewPage entrance on Friday morning.

      The sheriff's department reported that a semi pulling a tandem trailer lost control and struck the viaduct near the NewPage entrance at 11:14 a.m. Officials say that the driver lost control of the vehicle on the slushy roads, causing the crash.

      The tandem trailer overturned onto its side, blocking some lanes on US-2/41. The driver of the semi refused treatment, according to police.

      Witnesses reported seeing the driver having issues maintaining control of the empty tandem trailer.

      The crash is still under investigation.
