More than 20 vehicles involved in Hwy 51 crash, no one injured

MERRILL, Wis. (WSAW) -- The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department says no one was injured following a series of crashes Sunday.

A crash on US 51 causes a major traffic backup on Feb. 9, 2020.

Investigators said Sunday’s snowfall led to more than twenty traffic related incidents during a 4-hour time frame.

Many of the incidents involved vehicles leaving the roadway and rolling over. At least two semi- trucks jackknifed.

US Hwy 51 was closed for two hours on the north side of Merrill causing traffic to be routed through Merrill.
