WATERTOWN - A Dodge County Sheriff's sergeant says that rescue crews have taken two people to a hospital after a series of crashes Tuesday morning.

The crashes, which happened at about 6:15 a.m. Tuesday, led to the closure of both directions of State Highway 26 at the crash scene near County Highway Q.

The sergeant told Newsradio 620 WTMJ that one crash involved a vehicle going northbound which went over the center line and crashed head-on into a southbound vehicle.

Another vehicle went off the road at that crash scene, while a fourth vehicle crashed, causing property damage, all in the same area.

The sergeant mentioned slippery conditions in the area as a possible factor in the crashes.

There was no initial word on the severity of the injuries caused by the crash.

Crews have since re-opened State Highway 26.
