A two-vehicle crash on Highway 57 between Southern Door High School and Renards Cheese brought weekend traffic to a near-standstill Friday. Emergency responders were able to clear the road in approximately an hour and a half without closing either lane of traffic, and there were no serious injuries. Southern Door Fire Department Chief Chuck Cihlar said this is far from the first time the intersection of Highway 57 and S Cloverleaf Road has been a problem for drivers.
According to the Wisconsin DMV, the state saw a total of just over 129,000 crashes last year, with over 31,000 of those crashes involving injuries. 895 crashes occurred in Door County.
