MAINE, WI (WTAQ) - Three people were killed Thursday morning near Wausau, as the result of snowfall throughout much of the Badger State.
Marathon County sheriff’s deputies said a vehicle with 4 people slid across a center line, and was hit broadside by another vehicle with only a driver inside. The three people in the first vehicle died, and the other two were taken to a Wausau hospital with undisclosed injuries.
The crash happened around 8:30 a.m. on Marathon County Trunk “K” in the town of Maine, northeast of Wausau. It’s under investigation, and the State Patrol is reconstructing the accident scene.
Authorities said it was among numerous crashes in the area.
Central Wisconsin had around 3 inches of snow from Wednesday night through mid-Thursday morning. 1.5 to 4.5 inches fell in northern, central, and southwest parts of the Badger State.
If you need to shovel, you might want to do it before Thursday night, because it’s supposed to get colder. Overnight readings will drop to low as 4-above, with Friday’s highs struggling to reach 20.
