COLUMBIA COUNTY – The Wisconsin State Patrol is investigating a series of crashes that occurred this morning along northbound I-90/94/39 in Columbia County resulting in fatalities and numerous injuries.

At approximately 3:53 a.m., officers responded to a property damage, rear-end crash involving two semis at I-90/94/39 at WIS 60 near Lodi.

At approximately 5:11 a.m., a straight truck piled into the first crash scene which resulted in a Columbia County Highway worker being seriously injured, and serious but non-life-threatening injuries to two state troopers. All three individuals were transported to UW Hospital.

At approximately 6:45 a.m., as northbound traffic was queuing due to the earlier crashes, a major, multi-vehicle crash occurred along the northbound interstate near County K resulting in multiple fatalities and injuries. A semi-tractor traveling at highway speeds created a chain-reaction crash involving at least seven vehicles – two semi-tractor trailers, a dump truck and four passenger vehicles.
