Six People Sent to Hospital After Two-Car Crash in Racine

Half a dozen people have been sent to the hospital after a car crash in Racine.

Two cars crashed at the intersection of Barker St. and Buchanan St. around 1 p.m.

Neighbors heard a loud bang, and came out to see what happened.

The intersection was closed for hours. Officers put evidence into brown bags, a police photographer took pictures of the scene, and state patrol were called to the intersection, using large tools to survey the scene.

The condition of all six people sent to the hospital is unknown, but neighbors say one woman was ejected from a car and was lying on the ground. Witnesses say three ambulances took away all the occupants shortly after the crash.

Neighbors also say cars run the stop signs at the intersection regularly, but it's unclear if that's what caused this crash.

The Racine Police Traffic Bureau is currently investigating the crash. Racine Police investigators are interested in any additional information that anyone may have about this crime. Any witnesses, or citizens with information, are urged to call the Racine Police Department Investigations Unit at (262) 635-7756.
