Madison firefighters respond to several crashes on Milwaukee St.
MADISON, Wis. — The Madison Fire Department says it responded to multiple crashes on the same stretch of road Monday night.
Fire department officials say units were dispatched to a crash on Milwaukee Street at about 7:46 p.m. Monday. After turning onto Milwaukee Street from Stoughton Road, units came across a pickup truck with crash damage, but the driver urged firefighters to keep going because there was a crash up the road.
Engine 14 then came across a two-vehicle crash, but continued on because 911 dispatchers said there was a different car engulfed in flames on Harding Street. Firefighters were able to put out that fire before continuing to investigate the area.
Two people who were in that car were on the side of the road, and the driver was later taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
One of the drivers was cited for driving the wrong way on a divided highway, hit-and-run causing injury, and first offense operating a motor vehicle while impaired causing injury.
