A woman is recovering in the hospital, after a pickup truck loses its brakes and crashes into her SUV.

Ashwaubenon Public Safety said the crash happened early Thursday afternoon, on the I-41 Northbound off ramp heading towards East Lombardi Avenue.

Officers say the truck could not avoid hitting the SUV, after its brakes failed, causing the SUV to flip on its side and trap the driver inside.

"You know in a situation like this its hard to say what the best course of action is whether it is to go off the road or whether it is to chance getting onto the next road without striking someone," said Ashwaubenon Public Safety Captain Jody Crocker.

The woman driving the SUV is expected to recover from her injuries. Officers also say the woman driving the pickup truck refused any medical treatment.
