Motorcycle driver hurt after hitting mattress on Highway 441

by

APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - One man is in the hospital after he hit a mattress that fell off a pickup truck on Highway 441 Saturday.

Police say it happened on the southbound side of 441 between College Avenue and Calumet Street around 4:45 p.m.

The man, who was driving a motorcycle, crashed into the median after hitting the mattress.

Authorities say the motorcyclist's injuries aren't considered life-threatening.

The truck's driver was cited for having an unsecured load.

The road was shut down for 3 hours to investigate, and at the same time police noticed the road had buckled.

According to Appleton police, the roadway heaved up about 8 inches requiring immediate repair.

Because the road was already shut down, police say no one was injured by the buckle.
