Icy roads lead to multiple crashes across northeast Wisconsin

Northeast Wisconsin The first snowfall for many in northeast Wisconsin brought some ice, making road conditions slippery for drivers.

Green Bay Police say officers responded to about 20 crashes from 5 p.m. to about 10 p.m. on Saturday.

One of those crashes was a rollover crash on the Mason Street bridge, which caused it to close for a short time.

The Green Bay Police Department also responded to several crashes along I-41 and I-43 due to icy conditions.

The two right lanes of Northbound I-41 at Ashland Avenue were blocked while authorities attended to a car crash involving multiple vehicles.

Brown County dispatch estimates law enforcement responded to nearly 150 car crashes on Saturday. Most of the crashes happened in the afternoon and early evening hours.

In Outagamie County, dispatch says law enforcement responded to at least 20 traffic incidents throughout the day on Saturday.

The Suamico Police are asking drivers to avoid I-41 southbound between Velp Avenue and STH 172 because all the overpasses are very icy.

In a Facebook post, Suamico Police said officers responded to dozens of crashes and one crash involved a squad cat that was struck by another car. No one was injured.

Police are advising people to delay traveling or if you have to travel, consider taking surface streets and slowing down.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is also warning drivers of multiple road closures due to icy road conditions and car crashes.
