10/31 Foggy Weather Leads to Several Car Crashes

Heavy fog is believed to be the contributing factor in two separate five vehicle accidents on Highway 164 and Elmwood Road in Richfield on Wednesday morning. According to Lieutenant Martin Schulteiss from the Washington County Sheriff’s Department, the crash was between two cars, one T-boning the other at the intersection of Highway 164 and Elmwood Road. Two people were injured a sixty year old woman from Hubertis and a fifty year woman from Pewaukee. They were taken to the hospital. That crash caused a second one that involved three cars in a chain-reaction accident. Lieutenant Schulteiss believes a combination of the fog and the first car slowing down as it passed the original accident scene was the cause of a chain reaction crash. Drivers of two of the vehicles in the second crash were slightly injured but no one was hospitalized.  Prior to that accident, at about six fifteen a two car collision happened also believed to be fog related happened.
