Five people are dead as a result of a two vehicle crash on Highway 41 in Marinette County Sunday night. The fatal crash occurred at about 7:45 PM at the intersection of northbound 41 and Country Meadow Road, just outside of the Marinette city limits.
“Preliminarily, we have a white four door sedan, struck by a pickup truck that was northbound. And we have five fatalities,” said Chief Deputy Jerry Sauve of the Marinette County Sheriff's Department.
Witnesses say the car pulled out onto Highway 41 in front of the oncoming pickup. The three females and two males in the car all perished in the accident. Their identities are being withheld for the time being. The driver of the pickup truck survived. It is unclear if alcohol, speed or driving conditions played into the fatal crash. The area around the intersection was closed for about seven hours following the collision.
