Furniture lost in road leads to crashes

According to a Wisconsin State Patrol report, a driver who lost a load of furniture from the back of his truck Wednesday caused two crashes and many hours of traffic delays.

Police are still searching for the vehicle and the driver responsible for the lost furniture.

Several motorists as well as the Marathon County Sheriff’s Department reported the incident around 6:45 PM Wednesday alerted the State Patrol to the problem. There were shards of wood and broken glass spread across the westbound lanes of Highway 29 near the Business Highway 51 exit.

A passenger van and a tractor-trailer both struck mattresses in the road at the same time, resulting in a collision between the two vehicles. A mattress became stuck in the tractor-trailer’s drive shaft and it had to be towed from the scene.

A minivan behind the two vehicles had to brake sharply to avoid striking them, which then led to a truck behind the minivan crashing into it.
Nobody was injured in the two crashes.
