MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee County sheriff's officials say they're investigating a fatal four-vehicle highway crash caused by a wrong-way driver.

Authorities say two people died and another was seriously injured in the crash on Highway 41 about 1:30 a.m. Monday. The sheriff's department says a man was driving south in the northbound lanes, causing a chain reaction crash.

The lanes were closed for about four hours, but have since reopened.
