16 Too Many

Yes, I live in Wisconsin.  Yes, we get snow…sometimes lots-o-snow.  Yes, people are involved in car accidents because of the snow.  But, 16 in one morning?!?  Come on Wisconsin!  We are better drivers that that!

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that there were two serious injuries:

A 34-year-old West Allis woman is in critical condition after a two-vehicle car crash this morning on National Ave. near Oakdale Drive in the Town of Vernon, Waukesha County Sheriff’s Capt. Karen Ruff said.

“The roads were very icy,” Ruff said. The sun was shining so ice was melting, but it was also cold enough that there were still icy spots, she said. Some of the crashes on I-94 may also have been caused by people watching other crashes or following too close, she said.

These car accidents occurred during a 90 minute span.   Be careful Wisconsin!
