Snow leads to multiple crashes in Wisconsin

Roads were blocked by spunout cars and accidents and at least one fatality was reported in southeast Wisconsin, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. One major roadway affected is I-94 in Racine County — that road connects Chicago and Milwaukee and it’s going to be tough going for anyone travelling between the two cities today. Part of I-94 in Racine County is closed, the newspaper reported.

Milwaukee County coroner’s office investigator Jenni Penn reported one fatality related to the snow on I-43 in Greenfield, Wis., southwest of Milwaukee. The victim was pronounced dead on the scene near Highway 100, Penn said.

I-94 remains closed down in both directions from 7 Mile Road to Highway 20 (Washington Avenue), according to a dispatcher for the Racine County, Wis., Sheriff’s Office.
