In Wisconsin, heavy snowfall and near-whiteout conditions caused a pile of deadly highways captured by dashcam cameras on Wednesday. The deadly crash on Interstate 41 was part of a tragic day driving on snow-covered Wisconsin. Overall, more than 20 collisions occurred across the state, resulting in more than 80 vehicles and one death.

A driver with a drive recorder identified as William Van Aken shared his horrifying memories and videos with WISN. “The visibility got worse and I suddenly saw a cicada in front of me.

Heavy snowfall and freezing conditions were reported in the town of Pork where the crash occurred. At the scene, a Wisconsin patrol officer transferred six injured to a hospital for treatment and confirmed the death of a 37-year-old woman.
