SOMERS, WI (WLIP)—We have more information on the crash that left one person dead and Green Bay Road closed for several hours Thursday.
The situation began after the driver allegedly fled from a traffic stop around 7:15 AM after almost hitting a squad car. As the SUV fled west on Highway E it collided with a semi headed southbound on Green Bay Road and went underneath, ripping the SUV apart.
As investigators sifted through the debris field left behind they reportedly found crack cocaine, marijuana, a substantial amount of cash and a nine millimeter handgun that were in the suspect’s possession.
His identity has not been released.
The driver of the semi and a driver of a third vehicle that was hit by debris were checked out at the scene but were not transported to the hospital.
