JANESVILLE, Wis. (WMTV) - A driver of a semi-truck received minor injuries in a Friday morning crash in Janesville that shut down a portion of Highway 11 overnight.

Around 1:10 a.m. Friday, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation reported a crash on Highway 11 underneath the S. Read Road bridge.

Video submitted by a NBC15 viewer shows a semi-truck with heavy damage to the front of the vehicle. Debris is strewn out onto the road as the trailer is seen laying on the embankment next to the road.

The crash was cleared in less than an hour and the road was back open by 2 a.m. Friday.

Officials say the semi was the only vehicle involved and weather was a possible factor in the wreck.

The Rock County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene.
