At least two die on slippery Wisconsin highways

MADISON (AP) — At least two people have died in accidents as freezing drizzle made for slippery roads in parts of Wisconsin.

Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain says a man was checking his SUV for damage after he fishtailed and slid into a concrete barrier, when he was struck and killed by a pickup truck that slid on the same ice. It happened about 7 a.m. Friday on a bridge on Highway 151.

The man, who was in his 70s, died at the scene. His name has not been released.

A 17-year-old Mosinee girl died in what the Wisconsin State Patrol calls a weather-related two-vehicle crash on Highway 34 near Knowlton. It happened about 7:30 a.m. Her name has not been released.
