6 hurt when 25 vehicles crash in Milwaukee suburb

Posted:

MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. (AP) -- Six people were injured when 25 vehicles crashed in nine separate accidents on a Milwaukee area highway.

Police say sun glare off wet pavement and a slowdown in traffic may have contributed to the crashes about 8 a.m. Tuesday on Highway 41 in suburban Menomonee Falls.

Authorities say the six injured were taken to a hospital with injuries that are not life threatening.

The state Department of Transportation says the crashes temporarily blocked two southbound lanes. Traffic returned to normal shortly before 10 a.m.
