Two sent to hospital in U.S. 141 crash involving liquid propane delivery truck

MARINETTE COUNTY, Wis. (WFRV) - Two people were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries following a three vehicle crash Thursday morning.

The crash occurred at 10:54 a.m. on U.S. Highway 141 in the Town of Beaver, one third of a mile north of County Highway P.

One of the vehicles involved in the crash was a liquid propane delivery truck.

Police officials say that the crash occurred when a southbound auto parts delivery truck slowed in traffic, and was read-ended by a pickup truck towing a trailer loaded with another truck.

After that initial impact, the truck towing the trailer went left, and struck a northbound liquid propane delivery truck. The propane delivery truck then entered the east ditch, and rolled onto its side.

The pickup truck also ended up in the east ditch, and the parts delivery truck entered the west ditch. 

All three drivers were treated at the scene. Two were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Highway 141 traffic was detoured as multiple wrecker services responded to the scene.

Due to concerns over the liquid propane delivery truck, Sheriff Deputies attempted to evacuate nearby residents, but there was nobody home in any of the residences.

Detours around this section of U.S. 141 remained in place until the liquid propane delivery truck could be removed safely.

More information is expected to be released at a later time.
