Man killed when rig falls off bridge into lake

A man was killed in an accident after the semi-truck fell from the bridge during a snowstorm.

The truck accident occurred as the driver was heading west down Interstate 90-94 and he struck the median, causing the rig to fall into the icy lake. The truck caused structural damage to the bridge.

Emergency crews were able to rescue the driver and the passenger out of the cab of the truck and they were sent to the hospital to be treated. The truck was later removed from the lake and the bridge was checked on  both sides for safety. The westbound lanes of the road remained closed for hours.

Our deepest sympathies are with the friends and family of the victim.
