A Weston man was injured in a crash on Interstate 39 outside of Wausau Friday.
According to Wisconsin State Patrol Trooper Kurt Tomkowiak, the 53 year-old man was traveling north on I-39 when he crossed the median and two lanes of southbound traffic before crashing into a pine tree. The crash occurred shortly after 4:30 p.m. near Maple Ridge Road.
Rescuers worked for over an hour removing the man from his vehicle, a job which required the Jaws of Life. The driver was transported by helicopter to Aspirus Wausau Hospital for treatment.
There were no other cars involved in the accident, and the man was the sole occupant of his vehicle.
Police stopped traffic on the Interstate while rescuers worked to free the man. Southbound traffic was backed up between Maple Ridge Road and Highway N.
