MILADORE, Wis (WSAU) There were multiple injuries in a two-car crash Saturday afternoon on the Wood and Portage county line on Highway S near Miladore.

A police report says a 17-year-old driver was ejected from one vehicle after failing to stop at a stop-sign. The other vehicle went into the ditch and landed on its side, trapping the driver inside. Both drivers were taken by ambulance to St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield.

A passenger in the first car was seriously inured and was airlifted from the scene.

There's been no further update on their conditions. Names will be released later today.

The Wood and Portage county sheriffs departments are investigating.

There was a three-vehicle crash on Highway 10 in Wood County near Auburndale around 7pm Sunday night.

A car side-swiped a semi-truck. The car was then rear-ended by a mini-van that couldn't stop in time.

The highway was closed for about an hour while the wreckage was cleared.

One person inside the car was hospitalized.

Poor weather conditions were a factor in the crash.
