Three people injured after crash with semi

Interstate 43 shut down for hours

GRAFTON — Three people were injured Tuesday afternoon in a crash involving with van and semi.

At approximately 1:17 PM on Tuesday, November 7th, the Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Office responded to a multi-vehicle traffic accident on southbound Interstate 43 between Highway 60 and Lakefield Road in the Town of Grafton. The investigation determined a van pulling a camper was travelling southbound on I-43 which was slowing for traffic ahead when it was struck from behind by a semi-tractor trailer. The impact caused the semi-tractor to jackknife into the median.

Three people were transported to Aurora Medical Center in Grafton for non-life threatening injuries.

For several hours, all lanes of I-43 southbound were closed at Highway 60 due to lane blockage from large amounts of debris from the camper. The Ozaukee County Highway Department along with the Grafton Fire Department and neighboring firefighters assisted with off-loading approximately 70,000 pounds of paper products from the semi-tractor trailer.
