Two killed when minivan collides with semi in Oconto County

OCONTO COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) - Two people were killed Friday following a head-on collision between a minivan and a semi truck on Highway 64.

At about 11:40 a.m., rescue crews were called to Highway 64, just west of Highway 32, in the Town of Mountain.

The Oconto County Sheriff's Office says an eastbound minivan crossed the centerline and hit a semi truck head on.

Two people in the minivan were pronounced dead at the scene, according to the sheriff's office.

The semi driver was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

"It appears the road conditions were a factor," says a statement from Sheriff Mike Jansen.

The names of the victims were not released.
