FITCHBURG (WKOW) -- Police in Fitchburg are investigating a crash Tuesday involving a semi-truck and bridge.

It happened just after 2:50 p.m. as the semi-truck was traveling south on Highway 14, just south of the Beltline Highway.

The truck, which was carrying a large tank on a flatbed trailer, struck a railroad bridge as it was traveling underneath it. The tank hit the bridge, causing it to fall off the trailer and into the southbound lanes of Highway 14.

Authorities say there does not appear to be any damage to the bridge, and there were no reports of injuries or other vehicles damaged.

Several members of the Wisconsin Highway Department and a local towing company assisted in clearing the tank from the roadway.

Members of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the Wisconsin State Patrol, and the Wisconsin Highway Department assisted with the investigation.
