1 killed, 2 injured when van collides with semi-truck

It is the responsibility of motorists in Lacrosse, Wisconsin to always take the proper precautions when driving and to be diligent and aware of their surroundings at all times. This is especially true in construction zones. Road work can present its own unique driving conditions with the potential for serious injuries for motorists and construction workers alike. This is why it is so important that drivers slow down and pay attention to what is going on around them.

An accident that occurred recently in a construction zone in Kenosha County, Wisconsin, may have been avoided had a driver been paying closer attention to his surroundings. Although authorities are still investigating the accident, they do not believe that driver impairment played any part.

The truck accident occurred on I-94 southbound at around 10:45 p.m. where the freeway had been reduced to one lane in order to accommodate construction on the interstate. At the point where lanes merged, a minivan crashed into the back of a semi-truck that was stopped due to the traffic.

The 40-year-old semi-truck driver suffered minor injuries to his neck and shoulder. The 34-year-old driver of the minivan was transported to the hospital via helicopter where he was listed in critical condition with severe head injuries. His 33-year-old wife was the only other passenger in the car and was killed in the collision.

While authorities are still investigating this accident, those who were involved may wish to consult with a personal injury attorney to discuss their right to compensation for their injuries and medical expenses.
