MILWAUKEE -- The Wisconsin Department of Transportation released traffic camera video on Thursday, September 10th which shows a wreck involving a semi in the Plainfield Curve on Milwaukee's south side.

The wreck happened around 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday, September 8th. The traffic camera shows the semi was in the second lane from the left -- and the driver appears to lose control in the middle of the curve. The truck careens into the median on the left before crossing all lanes of traffic and slamming into the sound barrier.


The lanes affected by this wreck were reopened to traffic a little more than three hours later.

The truck driver suffered minor injuries.
