CHICAGO, Ill. – A multi-vehicle crash on Wednesday left one person dead and several other injuries on Interstate 41 in Wisconsin.
A semi-truck hit a snowplow, causing it to overturn and roll into a ditch.
A witness said, “visibility cut and then all the sudden I was seeing the semi in front of me and then you could see stuff in the ditch on the left and the ditch on the right and then just the unfolding of the semi hitting the dump truck in front of me.
The crashes took place near State Highway 144 and Cedar Creek Road in Polk, Wisconsin, about an hour northwest of Milwaukee.
There were at least three chain-reaction crashes within a 20-mile stretch, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. It is not clear how many people were injured or how many serious injuries there were.
