MADISON (WKOW) -- The Madison Police Department is releasing new details in a fatal crash which shut down the Beltline Tuesday morning.
 
Madison Police Traffic Specialists say a pickup truck, a semi trailer, and a passenger car were all heading westbound when they collided. Exactly how it took place is under investigation. As a result of the collision, both the semi and the pickup left the westbound lanes, entered the median, and rolled over into the eastbound lanes of traffic.
 
The pickup driver, a 55-year-old Dane County man, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The semi driver was transported to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The car driver was also taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
 
The semi was transporting bags of fertilizer. Many ended up in traffic lanes, and some spilled their contents, requiring the Department of Natural Resources to be notified.
