In about a 12-hour time span, 32 cars crashed along the interstate. That's more than five times the normal daily average of freeway accidents.
Between 5 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday, there were 32 car accidents along the Milwaukee County freeway system. That's more than five times the normal daily average for freeway accidents according to a press release from the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office Monday. In the North Shore, there were two major accidents including: Out of the 32 accidents Monday, 17 were property damage only, 10 involved injuries and five did not involve any damage according to the release. Usually there are only an average of three to six accidents per day. The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office suggests allowing greater stopping distances and driving at reduced speed in reduced visibility situations like Monday's thick fog.
