APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - One man is in the hospital after he hit a mattress that fell off a pickup truck on Highway 441 Saturday.
Police say it happened on the southbound side of 441 between College Avenue and Calumet Street around 4:45 p.m.
The man, who was driving a motorcycle, crashed into the median after hitting the mattress.
Authorities say the motorcyclist's injuries aren't considered life-threatening.
The truck's driver was cited for having an unsecured load.
The road was shut down for 3 hours to investigate, and at the same time police noticed the road had buckled.
According to Appleton police, the roadway heaved up about 8 inches requiring immediate repair.
Because the road was already shut down, police say no one was injured by the buckle.
