GREENFIELD — Officials with the Greenfield Fire Department were called out to a rollover crash in the Hale Interchange on Tuesday night, October 27th. This, just days after a chain-reaction crash in the same area.
The latest incident happened on I-43 NB, just east of Highway 100 in the Hale Interchange shortly after 10:30 p.m.
We’re told a 23-year-old man driving an SUV had his vehicle roll several times, before it came to rest on its passenger side in a ditch.
The driver was able to get out of the vehicle on his own — by climbing out a back window.
He wasn’t hurt.
The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the scene of this crash.
One lane of the freeway was shut down for about 20 minutes so that the tow truck driver could get the vehicle out of the ditch.
This incident comes just days after a chain-reaction crash in the same area.
A Greenfield Fire Department command SUV was struck after officials responded to a vehicle that went into a ditch near the Hale Interchange Friday night, October 23rd.
The chain-reaction crash which was then set off involved five other vehicles.
While fire officials were tending to the driver who went into the ditch, a woman driving a PT Cruiser struck the Chevy Tahoe command SUV. The fire department SUV started on fire following the crash. It was a minor fire, but the fire department did have to pull a hose line out just in case.
The woman who was driving the PT Cruiser was injured and was transported to Froedtert Hospital.
There were three additional accidents involving five other vehicles.
As a result of these crashes, all lanes of I-43 eastbound were temporarily shut down.
Four people were injured in these other crashes, but all four were treated and released at the scene.
