Massive 85-Vehicle Pileup on I-39/90 Leaves 21 Injured in Wisconsin

On Tuesday, January 26th, a massive pileup involving 85 vehicles occurred on Interstate 39/90 between Janesville and Beloit, Wisconsin. The Wisconsin State Patrol reported that 21 people were injured in the crash.

The pileup was caused by a band of heavy snow that moved through the area, leading to icy road conditions. The crash, which occurred shortly after 10:00 am, shut down the interstate in both directions and caused traffic to be diverted onto the local roads.

The Wisconsin State Patrol reported that the majority of the vehicles involved were passenger cars and trucks, but there were also a few semi-trucks and other large vehicles mixed in. The crash was so severe that it took several hours for emergency responders to clear the scene.

Fortunately, there were no fatalities reported in the crash, and all of the injured individuals are expected to make a full recovery. The Wisconsin State Patrol is still investigating the crash and has not yet released any additional information.

As of Tuesday evening, all lanes of Interstate 39/90 have been reopened. Motorists are advised to use caution when driving in the area and to be aware of the potential for icy road conditions.
