Multiple-car collision on 1-94 leaves 1 dead, numerous injured

Winter has arrived in Wisconsin and with it has inevitably come crashes due to slippery and snowy conditions. It can take some time to get used to driving in the snow again, but drivers need to remember to use caution and common sense. This includes reducing speeds and allowing yourself plenty of time to stop. It is also a good idea to turn your lights on in the snow and to keep your windows and windshield clear.

Less-than-ideal conditions led to a multiple car collision near Mount Pleasant recently. As a result several people were injured and one was killed. A garage owner in Franksville reported that the accident spread over a half-mile on the interstate and that nearly all of the vehicles involved were totaled.

The fatal car accident occurred when vehicles crashed into the back of two semi-trucks that were stopped on 1-94 because of another accident ahead of them. A sedan that crashed into one of the trucks was in turn rear-ended by another semi. The impact killed a man who was riding in the front passenger seat of the sedan.

The pile-up left at least 50 people hospitalized. There were so many people injured that ambulances were required to take several injured people in one trip. Authorities report that a majority of the injuries were minor.

Although the accident is still being investigated, those involved would be well advised to speak with an attorney. Because of the large amount of vehicles involved, it could be a nightmare to try to get the proper compensation to which they are entitled.
