Semi Crash in Vilas Cty Due to Icy Roads

23 Oct News

A Vilas County crash yesterday morning was likely caused by icy conditions.

Highway 51 was closed for several hours at Spider Lake near Manitowish Waters. A semi-truck driver lost control of his rig when traveling over the bridge and left the roadway into the ditch.

Several power lines were also struck during the accident causing some to lose power. Crews worked into the afternoon to clear the scene and remove the truck from the ditch.

No one was injured during the crash.

Several other vehicle accidents were reported in the northern region of our listening area due to snowy or icy conditions.
