A TMJ4 News crew spotted a number of police cars and utility vehicles responding to the scene around 1 p.m.

According to the Waukesha Police Department, the driver of the truck lost control of the vehicle and went into oncoming track. The truck rolled over and collided with an electric pole before coming to rest on its roof. Police say they believe the driver was suffering from a medical event. The driver was also in possession of a firearm.

Due to the driver not responding to police questions, as well as altered behavior and the firearm, police say there was an immediate medical evaluation by the City of Waukesha Fire Department.

The driver was provided medical care and extricated from the truck. The driver was then transported to a local hospital and is now in stable condition.

Police say one Waukesha officer suffered a minor injury while evaluating the driver.
