Multiple Crashes Close Portions Of I-41 Thursday

A number of crashes on I-41 near Kaukauna caused portions of the interstate to be closed Thursday evening.

KFIZ’s Breaking News Editor, Doug Raflik, was the first to report that I-41 north was closed due to a crash around 5 p.m. Thursday. The highway was closed at Highway U (exit 154).

Traffic was detoured around the area for about an hour, making travel north into Green Bay for any Girls High School Basketball State Tournament fans difficult.

One accident was located near I-41 and Freedom Rd., between Kaukauna and Green Bay and included an armored truck which left the driver unconscious.

A second crash involved at least 7 vehicles and was located on I-41 North at Exit 154. That crash was due to the backup caused from the original crash north of the Exit 154.

No details were given as to any injuries sustained in the crashes.

Raflik will be a guest on the KFIZ “Early Show” with Marty in the Morning, Friday, in the 7a hour.
