Only minor injuries were reported Monday in a two-vehicle crash in the eastbound lane of Hwy. 29 near Marathon, according to preliminary emergency scanner traffic.

The crash was reported at about 9:30 a.m. at Mile Marker 153 and resulted in a right lane closure. According to the Wisconsin Dept. of Transportation, the closure was expected to last for about two hours to allow crews to clear the scene.

This is a developing story.

The Pilot often relies on reports from police officials in control of a crime, fire or crash scene during a breaking news event. While these initial reports are valuable to readers, they also can be incomplete and even inaccurate. We let readers know what we can and can’t confirm, as well as when and how we received our information. Then we work to aggressively gather a wider range of perspectives and to verify the information through public records, interviews, photos and videos, all of which are verified before publishing.
