Fatal Racine Car Accident on I-94

An Illinois man was killed in a Racine car accident Thursday night.

According to Sergeant David Coughlin with the Racine County Sheriff’s Department, the accident occurred shortly before 6:30 p.m. in the northbound lanes of Interstate 94, just south of Highway 11. Police blocked off the northbound lanes of the interstate from Highway KR to Highway 11, while crews worked to clean up the wreckage.

According to the Wisconsin State Patrol accident report, a vehicle heading north on I-94 collided with the back corner of a disabled semitrailer that was parked on the right shoulder of the roadway. Police say the semi trailer had its hazard lights on and emergency triangles out behind it at the time of the crash. The driver of the semitrailer was not injured in the crash.

The driver of the car was killed instantly, police say. No further information about the victim was immediately available.

The accident remains under investigation by the Wisconsin State Patrol and the Racine County Sheriff’s Department.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family and friends during this difficult time.
