A semi-truck caused a chain-reaction crash on I-39 that resulted in multiple deaths and serious injuries on Friday, June 12th. The incident happened at about 6:45 AM when a semi collided with the wreckage of an earlier crash (involving two different semis) that injured a Columbia County Highway worker and two state troopers. The semi, traveling at highway speeds, caused a chain-reaction crash involving seven vehicles that included two semis, a dump truck, and four passenger vehicles. The crash resulted in multiple vehicle fires.

Four people died at the scene, including Samantha McMullen (23) of Oconomowoc, Joseph Kosinski (72) of Madison, Phillip Bruno (55) of Ingleside, IL, and Eleanor Heeringa-Owen (59) of DeForest. All four were in separate vehicles. Among the seriously injured include Ross Kopfer (50) of Oconomowoc and a 10-year-old boy who was a passenger in his pick-up truck. Dawn Marshall (52) of Cleveland, OH and Clayton Mortenson (24) of Poynette suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
