RAYMOND, WI – Four people were injured in a two-car rollover crash that happened Tuesday night on 76th Street and Highway G.
When officials with the Racine County Joint Dispatch Center took the call at 6:06 p.m., witnesses reported a multiple car crash with people trapped inside, according to a press release by the Racine County Sheriff’s Department.
Preliminary reports indicated that a gray Jeep Grand Cherokee pulling a small wooden trailer had stopped at a stop sign. It traveled westbound into the intersection as a second Jeep Grand Cherokee — which had the right-of-way — crashed into it.
Deputies arrived to find two Jeep Grand Cherokee’s had crashed, one had rolled over and was on its roof. Conscious and talking, the two people inside the overturned vehicle had to be cut out of the car by rescue workers with the Raymond Fire Department using Jaws for Life. They were taken to a nearby hospital.
The two people in the Jeep Grand Cherokee that had not overturned were also taken to the hospital for their injuries.
The driver of the gray Jeep pulling the trailer was cited for failing to yield the right-of-way from a stop sign.
