EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) — The Thanksgiving week snowstorm is causing headaches for drivers in the area, and leading to problems on area roads. As of 7:45 a.m. Wednesday, the Wisconsin State Patrol Eau Claire Post is reporting 10 crashes, 23 runoffs, and 19 vehicle assists. Inside Eau Claire city limits, the ECPD says crashes are low, but power outages are a problem because tree limbs are falling on top of power lines. Power crews are busy working to restore power to homes and street lights.

Late Tuesday night at about 11:15, the Rusk County Sheriff’s Office advised of a vehicle slide in on Highway 27 South of County Highway I. According to the report, 2 occupants were transported to the LEC due to safety reasons. After an investigation, one subject was taken into custody for OWI. The vehicle was left in the ditch as it was not a road hazard and the inclement weather made it dangerous to have it removed at the time.

The Rusk County Sheriff’s Office just after 12 Midnight this (Wednesday) morning, a female subject advised of a one vehicle rollover. According to the report, the driver was in her van which was on it’s side in the ditch on Highway 8 and Persons Road West of Bruce. A Rusk County deputy, Bruce ambulance and the Bruce Fire Department responded to the scene. No injuries were reported and no other information was available.
