KENOSHA,WI—A three vehicle accident snarled traffic for hours on I-94 in Racine County yesterday.
It happened just after 2:30 PM when multiple 911 calls reported an accident just south of 2 Mile Road in Yorkville.
According to the Racine County Sheriff’s office, a Chevy Tahoe struck a crushable barrier along the median wall. It then stuck a Jeep and ended up wedged under a tanker truck.
The driver of the Tahoe, a 53 year old man, and the occupants of the Jeep-a married 76 year old couple-were transported to the hospital with injuries. Their condition was not released. The driver of the tanker was not injured.
The southbound lanes of I-94 were closed in excess of two hours while one lane was closed for an additional hour to repair the barrier. It’s unclear what caused the crash.
