APPLETON, Wis. - An Appleton driver who was involved in four crashes in seven minutes has suffered life-threatening injuries.

The Wisconsin State Patrol says the 23-year-old was driving in Outagamie County early Sunday morning when he struck a guardrail. He then rear-ended two vehicles and continued driving.

Moments later he struck a traffic standard in the median of a county highway and ended up eastbound in the westbound lane. There he struck three vehicles head-on.

At that point the man's vehicle came to a stop. Emergency personnel responded and took him to a hospital.

One driver had serious but non-life-threatening injuries. No one else was hurt.

The crashes took place in a four-mile span.

The State Patrol says alcohol may have been a factor.
