The Bayfield County Sheriff's Office says there were no injuries in a crash that closed U.S. Highway 2 for six hours Saturday.

A westbound semi-truck rolled over in the roundabout at the corner of U.S. Highway 2 and State Highway 13 at about 7:30 a.m.  No one was injured and no hazardous materials were spilled, but the vehicle blocked the roadway.

The driver of the truck is from St. Paul and told authorities he did not know about the roundabout until he encountered it.  The trailer overturned as the truck exited the intersection.

Traffic was detoured to State Highway 137 while the crash was cleared.
