UPDATE: Multiple people injured in Portage Co. crash


Portage County authorities say at least two people were seriously injured after a crash in the Town of Stockton. Police say six other people were involved in the crash, but their injuries are unknown.

Authorities say it happened around 3 o'clock in the afternoon on U.S. Highway 10 near County Highway K.

Portage County officials say an SUV pulling a camper was traveling east, when it swerved to avoid something in the road. The driver then overcorrected and hit the median.

A helicopter was called in to help transport two victims, a woman and a child.

Because of the crash the left eastbound lane was closed for several hours.
