Suspected drunk driver flees scene of crash in Racine
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Racine County Sheriff's Department reports a car caught fire early Sunday morning, forcing part of I-41 near Raymond to close for several hours.
Officials say the crash happened around 2 a.m., and the car was fully engulfed when deputies arrived. The sheriff's department says the driver, a 30-year-old man from Milwaukee, told deputies he swerved to avoid another vehicle and then hit a wall. The driver then lost control of his car and crossed four lanes of traffic before coming to a stop at the median.
The sherriff's department confirms the driver and his passenger -- a 37-year-old woman -- were able to get out safely. Both were taken to Froedert Hospital in Milwaukee with minor injuries.
The crash remains under investigation, and officials say the driver did not appear impaired at the scene.
