JANESVILLE (KWWL) -

Things were slow going in the Janesville area today after a combine and trailer tipped over.

The Janesville Police Department says they were called to the west roundabout at Highway 218 and 275th Street just before 11:30 a.m.

They say the driver, who was taking the combine to Canada, was going too fast, causing the combine to tip over while still connected to the trailer.

The truck, trailer and combine were all damaged. Crews moved the combine to a different truck and trailer which is taking the combine to Canada, according to police.

The driver was not injured, but was ticketed for failure to maintain control.

The ramp to northbound Highway 218 was closed for about four hours.
