The first crash call came at 3:24 a.m., regarding an incident on Highway G at the northbound off ramp. The second incident was called in 3 minutes later at Six Mile Road, which involved a northbound semitrailer hitting and going through the median, causing the wall to go into and block the southbound lanes, which caused lane closures in both directions.

The fourth incident also involved two vehicles and was reported at 3:52 a.m. at Highway G at the crossover for the I-94 on/off ramps involving a plow truck. An injury was reported in that crash.

The Sheriff’s Office also responded to a car-versus-tree crash and two other vehicles in a ditch. Those incidents also were caused by weather, sheriff’s officials said.
