Container falls off semi, kills 1

A 60-year-old man was killed Wednesday when a container fell off a semi tractor-trailer and crushed the sport utility vehicle he was driving, authorities said. The semi broke down just south of Madison, Wis., and the tractor was being replaced. As it began to pull out, the container fell off, police said. Authorities believe the tractor was not hooked up properly.

The driver of the SUV was pinned inside the vehicle, police said, and rescue personnel had to extricate him. He died from fatal injuries sustained in the accident, authorities said. The passenger in the SUV was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
