PESHTIGO, Wis. (WFRV) – Multiple crews responded to a two-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 41 on Monday.

The Town of Peshtigo Fire Department announced on their Facebook page that they were dispatched at around 12:30 p.m. to southbound lanes on U.S. Hwy 41 near Flame Road for reports of a two-vehicle crash that resulted in injuries.

The fire department concluded that the incident occurred when one vehicle struck and snapped a utility pole, coming to rest on its side, while the other vehicle involved ended up in the median.
