Head-on crash on Highway 8 kills one
By River News Staff


One person died Thursday on the way to the hospital following a multi-vehicle accident on U.S. Highway 8 near Rhinelander.

According to Oneida County sheriff's captain Terri Hook, the county's dispatch received multiple 911 calls at approximately 10:14 a.m. reporting a two-car head-on accident at the intersection of U.S. Highway 8 West and County Highway N in the Town of Woodboro.

"Upon arrival, deputies found several people with injuries," Hook said in a press release. "The drivers of both vehicles were transported to the hospital by ambulance. The passenger of the westbound vehicle was transported by Medivac helicopter. The passenger of the westbound vehicle passed away enroute to the hospital."

The name of the individual who passed away is being withheld pending notification of relatives, Hook noted.

Both lanes of the highway were closed for several hours while law enforcement cleared the scene.

The sheriff's office was assisted by the Nokomis Fire Department, Crescent Fire Department, Rhinelander Fire Department, Oneida County Emergency Medical Services, Rhinelander Medics 91, Medivac Helicopter Ambulance, Woodboro First Responders, Pine Lake First Responders, Oneida County Highway Department, Department of Transportation, Wisconsin State Patrol and the Oneida County Medical Examiners Department.

The accident remains under investigation.
