City of Madison firefighters including the Department's Hazardous Materials team responded to a 3-vehicle crash westbound on the Beltline this afternoon shortly before 2:00 p.m.
Two people were transported to hospitals following the crash, which involved two passenger vehicles and a semi-trailer. The semi jackknifed into the ditch after traffic ahead suddenly slowed. The HazMat team was called to offload diesel fuel leaking from auxiliary tanks.
The westbound lanes of the Beltline were closed for approximately two hours between Mineral Point and Old Sauk Roads while tow trucks cleared the wreckage.
