It only takes a moment for a serious crash to happen.  An accident Saturday on Interstate 39 killed a man from Compton.

Police say the crash happened Saturday night on Interstate 39 north of PawPaw when a man heading south in a semi lost control.  Police say the semi rolled onto its side, blocking both southbound lanes.

32 year old Michael Welch was also riding south and hit the truck’s trailer.  Welch was pronounced dead at the scene.  The man driving the truck, Mark Wiedmeyer of Allentown, Wisconsin was ticketed for improper lane usage.
