At least one person was injured during a late evening truck accident near the border of Racine and Kenosha counties.  The accident involved a semi truck and a car and left the truck driver with serious but non-life threatening injuries.  According to Wisconsin State Patrol the truck driver was taken by EMS personnel to St. Catherine's Hospital in Pleasant Prairie.  The driver of the car was not injured.

According to police reports the truck was headed down I94 near Racine when it struck a car.  The impact of the accident caused the truck to spill its load of hazardous material on the interstate and in a nearby ditch.  The truck was carrying sodium hydroxide at the time of the crash and it took workers four hours to clean up at least 200 pounds of the chemical.  Sodium hydroxide is used in making soap, rayon and in paper and petroleum refining.

There were no charges pending at the time of this report and no information was given as to the official cause of the accident.

The staff and attorneys at Hupy & Abraham hope that the driver is making a quick and complete recovery from his injuries.
