A 16-year-old was left trapped in his truck Wednesday night after a rollover crash in Blue Mounds, according to the Dane Co. Sheriff's Office.

Investigators say the teen's 2006 Dodge Ram was heading north on USH 151 when it went off the road and rolled several times before coming to a rest in the median. They did not way what may have caused the crash.

Rescue crews needed to extricate the teen, whose name was not released, and he was rushed by helicopter to UW Hospital, the Sheriff's Office said. His injuries were described as non-life threatening.

Animal control needed to respond to the scene to take care of three pythons that were inside the truck.

The wreck closed the highway for about an hour-and-a-half.
