Three Car Crash on USH 2


Minor injuries were reported after two vehicles, one a Douglas County Sheriff's squad car, were rear ended this morning on USH 2.

Deputy Kris Witt was treated and released from a local hospital. She was westbound on USH 2 near Bayfield Rd, west of Poplar, when she pulled onto the shoulder to check on a disabled vehicle.

A trailing vehicle, a white Jeep, was slowing when it was struck from behind by a red Ford Explorer, forcing the Jeep across the oncoming lanes and into the ditch, where it rolled over.

The Explorer then struck the rear of the squad car, forcing it into the ditch.  The Explorer skidded to a stop further down the road with heavy front end damage.

No further information at this time.

The crash is under investigation by the Wisconsin State Patrol.
