Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

RACINE, WI – Two people were injured in a one-car crash that happened at 4:14 p.m. Sunday night on West Boulevard near 21st Street.

The car was going southbound on West Boulevard when it crashed into a tree. The driver and the passenger were taken to Ascension-All Saints Hospital, but one of them was then taken by Flight for Life to Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee,  said Lt. Dave Wohlgemuth, of the Racine Police Department.

Traffic investigators are still on scene.

Joe Lackey Jr. told the Racine County Eye that he was visiting some relatives when they heard sirens in the area.

“My wife walked down there and spoke to people there,” he said. “It looked like it (the car) had been on fire.”

We’ll update the story when we receive more information.
