Breaking: More than 100 vehicles involved in horror pileup on Wisconsin motorway.
BREAKING NEWS – More than 100 vehicles have been involved in a horror pileup on a motorway in Wisconsin, USA on Thursday, December 23.
Overturned semi-trucks burst into flames during the horror crash on the I-94 from Osseo to Northfield in west-central Wisconsin. Icy conditions have been blamed for the terrifying incident.
“There is a massive crash involving many vehicles both directions Northfield to Osseo and Osseo to Northfield,” the Jackson County Sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post. “Emergency vehicles need to be able to get to the scene.”
Medical helicopters were requested to attend the pileup as multiple semi-trucks are believed to be on fire with cars pinned underneath. Dispatchers described the scene as “too many vehicles to count,” per Channel 3000.
The sheriff’s office also said: “The Jackson County Emergency Dispatch Centre would like to report that all primary and secondary roads in our county are ice-covered and slippery.
“We would like to remind everyone, if at all possible, for your safety please salty home and limit travel as needed.”
The Wisconsin State Patrol said a number of crashes and run-offs were being investigated between mile markers 37 and 97. It is not yet known how people have sustained injuries from the huge crash.
