On Friday, Jan. 24, at 5:15 a.m., a 4-vehicle crash occurred on Hwy. 53 north of Hwy 8.
A truck lost control and struck a guardrail. Two semi-trucks traveling north collided with each other to avoid the crash, and a vehicle that was traveling behind the semi-trucks could not stop in time and stuck the back of one of the semi-trucks.
The crash caused one minor injury. One lane of Hwy. 53 was closed for about one hour.
The accident remains under investigation by the Barron County Sheriff’s Department.
