Along a stretch of I-43 in Walworth County, on Thursday, March 24 numerous car accidents occurred as a result of inclement weather. Drivers were facing limited visibility due to snow flurries and blowing wind. However, according to police, some of the car accidents were the result of a failure to yield or driver inattentiveness.
Additionally, the city of Elkhorn saw 2 separate rollover accidents that same night. The second rollover was a result of the driver trying to see the first SUV rollover accident. That driver went off the road and rolled in her SUV several times. Victims of both rollovers were taken to a local hospital.
