Sen. Kathleen Vinehout taken to hospital following I-94 crash

Posted:

Eau Claire/Racine, Wisconsin (WXOW)- Fresh snowfall makes for dangerous travel across the state Sunday. Senator Kathleen Vinehout was reportedly involved in one of dozens of crashes being reported. 

There have been so many crashes that the Wisconsin State Patrol hasn't compiled a count yet. But multiple accidents have been reported on Interstates 94 and 894, as well as I-39 and I-90.

State Senator Kathleen Vinehout (D - Alma) has reportedly been involved in a crash along I-94 near Racine, according to her social media accounts. Her staff has been posting updates online, via Sen. Vinehout's Facebook and Twitter pages.  

Here is the most recent update from Sen. Vinehout's Facebook page. "Thank you to everyone who has been asking about Kathleen. Here's what we know so far. Kathleen's vehicle was involved in a multi-car accident on I94 near Racine this morning. She is currently receiving care at a local hospital. If more details become available we will do our best to let you know."

Earlier in the day a posting on the Vinehout's Facebook page announced event cancellations in Kenosha and Racine due to the weather. The message also included a warning for drivers. "Unfortunately the weather has once again forced cancellations for these two events. They will be rescheduled as soon as we are able. Please don't drive in SE Wis today if you don't have to. Travel is not improving."
