Two Hospitalized after a Work Zone Crash in Wisconsin

Another tragic crash occurred near Oshkosh, WI on September 8, 2014. This crash, between a semi truck and a Winnebago County Highway Department truck, sent  two people to the hospital after the semi entered into a work zone and hit a highway department truck from behind.

Trucks are over represented in fatal highway crashes and even more so in work zone fatal crashes. Although trucks account for about four percent of registered vehicles, they are involved in 11 percent of fatal highway crashes, and 27 percent of fatal work zone crashes involve at least one truck.
