Five die in car-pickup collision

Five people were killed Sunday night when a car and a pick-up truck collided in northeast Wisconsin.

It happened about 7:45 p.m. in Marinette County on the Highway 41 expressway near Peshtigo.

According to Chief Deputy Jerry Sauve, the car turned onto 41 from Country Meadows Road in the path of the northbound pick-up.

All five who died were in the car. Two were males. Three were females.

Sauve said the pick-up driver was taken to a hospital with injuries and was being questioned by investigators.

The extent of the injuries was not disclosed, and he was apparently alone in his vehicle.

An accident reconstruction team from the State Patrol was at the crash site Sunday night.

Both northbound lanes and one southbound lane of Highway 41 were shut down for about seven hours. They reopened early Monday morning.
