Muskego — The three-vehicle roll-over crash at highways 36 and 45 that tied up traffic Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 17, resulted in what are believed to be only minor injuries.

One of the two pickup trucks involved rolled over at least once after the crash, coming to rest in a ditch about 100 feet from the intersection, according to the police report. Both the driver, a 58-year-old Oak Creek man, and passenger, a 54-year-old Milwaukee man, were taken to local hospitals.

Their truck was headed east on Highway 36 shortly after 3 p.m. when it was involved in a collision with a westbound car, also on 36. The  impact not only sent their pickup rolling into a ditch, but it spun the car around and into a second pickup truck that was waiting on Highway 36 at a red light.

The driver of that Butler-based work pickup truck was a 47-year-old Germantown man who was not taken to a hospital.

The 27-year-old Muskego man who was the driver of the car received a ticket for failure to yield the right of way. He was taken to Froedtert Hospital.
