Semi hauling a carnival ride rolls over in Mendota

Posted by wlpo on September 8, 2015

It’s supposed to be a wild ride on a carnival ride but not while hauling one on a trailer.

A semi carrying a carnival ride rolled over Tuesday morning around 5:30 in Mendota just east of Interstate 39 on Route 34. The 79-year-old driver Warren Schmidt of Wisconsin lost control at a curve. He was taken to St. Paul Medical Center in Mendota.

The state was called since the semi damaged the road. Deputies were on scene a few hours after for traffic control.
