The Madison Fire and Police Departments responded to a crash on the intersection of Milwaukee Street and West Corporate Drive at 7:46 pm Monday, Officer Nicole Schmitgen said in a statement. Upon arriving, the driver of a damaged pickup truck hit by an oncoming vehicle told firefighters to continue down the road where other vehicles had crashed. The driver of the truck was later taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
