FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - Fire crews say a milk truck overturned Thursday afternoon which sent the driver to the hospital.

Authorities say it happened on the southbound on-ramp from Johnson Street to U.S. Highway 151 just before noon.

The driver lost control of the tanker and was pinned inside. Rescue crews pulled the driver out and rushed him to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources provided instruction to crews on the scene to keep the area secure until companies arrived to clean up the spills and get the truck upright.

The truck was carrying 5,200 gallons of milk.
