Germantown -- First responders are reacting to newly released video of a multi-vehicle pileup along U.S. 41/45 in Germantown.  The department of transportation camera caught the chain reaction crash that occurred near Lannon Road, Sunday afternoon.

"After seeing that video it's amazing that we didn't have severe injuries," said Acting Germantown Fire Chief Mike Maury.

As soon as first responders arrived they assessed the scene and determined who needed to go to the hospital.

"You've got adults, you have children, you have pets involved and you have to put those emotions aside and do your job which is sometimes very difficult," said Maury.

They put their training into action.  Fire departments from surrounding communities like Sussex and Wauwatosa also pitched in.
