I-43 southbound in Manitowoc is down to a single lane until further notice as the result of a semi-tractor rollover late this morning. Manitowoc County Sheriff’s Deputy Inspector Jason Orth tells Seehafer news that a 54-year-old male from Two Rivers was operating a semi-tractor hauling a Polar tanker trailer containing a hot liquid asphalt material when he lost control—entered a ditch south of Middle Road in Manitowoc Rapids and rolling over several times before coming to a stop. There’s substantial damage to both the tanker and trailer and the Manitowoc County Hazmat team is on scene cleaning up the leaking material. The operator, whose name has not been released, was transported to a local hospital for treatment of what are described as “minor injuries”. Assisting on scene are Manitowoc Police along with personnel from Manitowoc and Silver Creek fire and rescue and Valders Fire Department.
