An intense amount of rain in central Wisconsin caused a 50-foot area of County Highway M to be washed away. The heavy rainfall made the road on the highway collapse, creating a 15 foot drop.
A Milwaukee couple was traveling on the road, coming back from a wedding in Green Bay, when their pick-up truck fell into the ditch that was created by the inclement weather. Another vehicle, driven by a 24-year-old woman also went off of the highway, and landed directly on top of the truck.
Authorities were alerted of the accident around 1:30 a.m. in the morning, and reported that all three individuals were killed at the scene of the car accident. At this time an investigation is still being conducted
Our thoughts go out to the victims’ families and friends during this tragic time.
