DARLINGTON - The intersection of Wisconsin 23 and Wisconsin 81 in Darlington was closed two hours Tuesday afternoon after a truck carrying two pickup trucks accidentally dumped its cargo. According to the Darlington Police Department, a truck pulling a fifth-wheeler trailer with two pickup trucks on it was northbound on Wis. 23 when the driver tried turning left onto Wis. 81. But the driver, Deande M. Williams, 23, Riverdale, Illinois, "attempted the turn too fast thereby causing the load to shift and overturn," Police Chief Jason King wrote in a news release.
