UPDATE: Truck flips over and leaks propane because of icy conditions

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Dane County Sheriff's deputies say Lake Kegonsa Road is expected to be shut down until approximately 11:00 a.m. after a tanker truck turned over on Lake Kegonsa Road in the town of Rutland at approximately 7:35 a.m.

A 2007 Kenworth fuel truck was traveling north on Lake Kegonsa Road, near Rutland-Dunn Town Line Road.  Icy conditions on a curve in the road caused it to slide and roll onto its side.

The truck was driven by 56-year-old Kevin W. Kahl of Black Earth. The crash created a small leak in the tanker, and the Stoughton Fire Department and Wisconsin State Patrol Inspectors also responded to the scene.

Kahl was not injured in the crash.
