NEKOOSA, Wis (WSAU)  A semi-trailer went down an embankment and partially overturned early Monday morning in Nekoosa. The accident happened on Highway 80 just before 2am.

Sheriffs deputies say the trucker was pulling over when the shoulder of the road gave way, causing the trailer to slide down an embankment. The trucker was not injured. His name has not been released.

The truck was carrying a load of frozen foods, which spilled into the roadway. The highway was closed in both directions for several hours while the area was cleared. The area near Zimmerman Road reopened around 9am this morning.
