LACROSSE, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) One person died and at least two others were hurt when six vehicles collided at an Interstate construction zone just north of La Crosse. It happened yesterday morning on I-90, east of the Wisconsin-Minnesota border near French Island.
According to the State Patrol's preliminary investigation, traffic was merging into the construction zone when a dump truck could not slow down in time, and it rear-ended another vehicle. A van and four cars also got snarled up in the crash. T-V reports said the dump truck landed on top of one of the cars, and both rolled into a median where they started on fire.
The drivers' names were not immediately released. An investigation continues.
