Driver arrested for OWI after car starts on fire on I-43
MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee County Sheriff’s officials responded to a car fire on I-43 at the Mineral Street off-ramp early Sunday morning, May 5th.
Officials say a driver drove through a construction zone and into a two foot deep drop in the pavement, which caused the car to start on fire.
The driver was able to escape, and was taken to the hospital — and is expected to survive.
That driver was also arrested for OWI (first offense).
