Semitruck, van crash kills 9 in western Wisconsin – NBC Chicago – U.S

Nine people were killed Friday when a semitrailer and a van collided at a west Wisconsin highway intersection.

Clark County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy James Hirsch said in a Facebook post that early morning crash reports indicate a semitrailer traveling on State Highway 95 collided with a van traveling on County Highway J southwest of the small town of Neillsville.

He said the van entered the intersection and hit the semitrailer. Eight of the nine people in the van, including the driver, died on the spot and one injured passenger was taken to a nearby hospital, he said.

The driver was the sole occupant of the semitrailer and died at the scene, Hirsch said.

Investigation is ongoing.

“Our hearts and prayers go out to the families and loved ones of all involved, as well as the first responders who worked quickly to provide assistance at the scene,” Gov. Tony Evers posted on X.

The names of everyone involved in the accident will be released after family members are notified, the sheriff's office said.

The highway was closed for 95 hours. Overhead video footage showed both vehicles on their sides.

The crash site is about 50 miles (80 kilometers) southeast of Eau Claire.
