WATCH: Trucker Cited in Horrifying Big Rig vs Tow Truck Crash

Milwaukee County, WI – Milwaukee County authorities released a deputy’s dash cam video of a horrifying accident on Monday along I-94 involving a big rig and a tow truck.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) said a tow truck operator was called to the scene of a crash along southbound I-94 and Layton Avenue on August 26 at approximately 11 a.m.

The tow truck driver was inside when a big rig, operated by Ali Z. Abubakar, of Ohio, jackknifed and slammed into the tow truck.


Abubakar was hauling a 6,000 pound load of light fixtures at the time of the crash.

The tow truck driver was transported to a nearby hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, according to MCSO.

He is still in the hospital awaiting surgery to put a rod in is leg according to local news outlet CBS58.

Abubakar and a passenger suffered cuts and abrasions to their arms and heads but were able to crawl out of the big rig without assistance, authorities said.


He was issued two citations: driving too fast for the conditions and failing to keep his vehicle under control.

Both fines are $224.00.

Authorities said the tractor-trailer blocked all three lanes of traffic and it took clean up crews a few hours to get traffic flowing again.
