At approximately 1:42 p.m., Deputies and the Monticello Fire Department responded to the W4300 block of CTH FF in the Town of Sylvester for a report of a single vehicle rollover crash. Investigation revealed that Gabriel L. Ottoway, 23, Mineral Point, WI, was operating a straight truck hauling fertilizer and was traveling eastbound when he failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway. The straight truck exited the roadway and rolled over. The straight truck sustained severe damage. The vehicle was later towed from the scene. Ottoway reported that he was wearing his seatbelt and that he was not injured.
As a result of the crash, the load of fertilizer leaked from the straight truck. The roadway was closed for approximately four hours while the spill was cleaned up.
