A startling video shot from a Wisconsin Department of Transportation camera shows the moment the man lost control of I-94 to the west, just east of I-94 at the zoo junction.
The red van set off from east to south he slid off the ramp, hit a snow on his right shoulder, and overturned the barrier wall.
The vehicle appears to turn during a fall and land straight on the I-94 in the right-hand emergency lane.
In response, the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office closed ramps from I-43 north to I-94 west and I-43 north to I-794 as the authorities responded to the scene.
“When MPs arrived, the red pickup was found straight in the right-hand emergency lane of West I-94. There were two citizens on the scene who were assisting the lone passenger,” the sheriff’s office wrote in a Saturday tweet later. “The driver was unconscious, breathing, and showed no signs of damage.”
The Milwaukee Fire Department also responded to the scene and transported the driver to a local hospital.
Eddie Santiago, director of Milwaukee County Highways and Maintenance, told WISN 12 on Monday that freezing melted snow would create a “natural ramp.”
