March 13, 2017 – Slinger, WI – About 35 people are safe at Slinger High School as rescue crews bused them out of a hazardous traffic pileup on I41 just south of Highway 60 on Monday morning.
“We have them sitting in the cafeteria. We’re giving them coffee, hot chocolate and water and making some popcorn so they have something to eat,” said Principal Phil Ourada. “We had the bus come in and one person arrived by ambulance but everybody’s fine.”
People were taken by bus to the high school around 1:30 p.m. as rescue crews worked to clear traffic off I41 following a major series of back-to-back accidents.
Ourada confirmed there were no infants or elderly dropped off at the school.
At 2 p.m. the people involved were working to get to Richfield and Pioneer Plaza to pick up their vehicle.
