KENOSHA COUNTY — A 41-year-old man is dead and five others injured following a serious multi-vehicle crash in Kenosha County Friday morning.

The Kenosha County Sheriff's Department says deputies and nearby fire and rescue departments responded to the intersection of STH 142 at US 45 just after 7 a.m.

Initial reports found a 2007 Dodge Caliber was driving northbound on STH 142 and failed to stop at the intersection marked with a 4-way stop - striking a 2O10 Chevy Traverse on the passenger side as the Traverse was traveling eastbound through the intersection.

The driver of the Dodge Caliber, a 41-year-old Williams Bay man, was brought to Froedtert Hospital in Pleasant Prairie, where he died from injuries suffered in the crash.

The driver of the Chevy Traverse is a 27-year-old Kenosha man, who was injured along with three of his four passengers.

Detectives at the scene concluded that after the initial impact, the Traverse struck a westbound 2006 Chevy Malibu. The driver of the Malibu, a 33-year-old Kenosha woman, suffered minor injuries.

No intoxicants were detected on any of the drivers at this time, according to the Sheriff's Department.
