KENOSHA, WI (WLIP; AP)–A snow event Friday caused a major traffic incident in Kenosha County.
The Wisconsin State Patrol reports that two people were injured when wintry weather created whiteout conditions around 1:30 PM.
The reduced visibility caused a pileup of several vehicles in the northbound lanes of I-94 near Highway ML, just north of the Illinois border.
The highway was back open by 5 PM but by that time backups stretched for several miles into Lake County.
Elsewhere dozens of people were injured in a massive traffic pileup amid snowy conditions in south central Wisconsin on Friday, which blocked Interstate 39/90 for hours.
