According to an investigation from the sheriff’s office, the male driver lost control of his vehicle when he was moving on the ramp from westbound I-94 to I-41. No one can say what led to him losing control of his pickup, but he was seen ploughing through the snowbank close to the barrier before dropping off onto the westbound I-94 distress lane.
Things could have turned worse for the driver if the truck had landed on its roof or on another vehicle moving on the road below. Thankfully, none of these happened and we hope the driver can leave the hospital as soon as possible.
