KENOSHA ⏤ Tuesday’s snow, while making winter feel more conventional this year, led the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department to respond to a number of calls on local roadways.

According to Sgt. David Wright, during the winter storm warning, the department responded to the following snow and traffic-related calls from 6 p.m. Dec. 29 to 6 a.m. Dec. 30:

  • Four accidents with injuries;
  • Eight property-damage accidents;
  • 12 assist motorists;
  • And, lastly, three fire calls.

“During the storm, our department assisted the Wisconsin State Patrol by blocking traffic in the 12200 block of I-94 northbound for a fatal motor vehicle crash that they investigated,” Wright added in a department release.

Deputies kept up with calls

At this time, there are no road closures in Kenosha County due to Tuesday’s storm, according to Wright.
