One injured when two semis collide in downtown Litchfield

LITCHFIELD — Two semis collided in a rear-end crash Monday morning in Litchfield, injuring one of the drivers.

The incident happened around 10 a.m. on state Highway 22 at Ripley Street in downtown Litchfield.

According to the State Patrol, a 1996 Western Star semi driven by William Bernard Deadrick, 49, of Litchfield, was going north on Highway 22 when it rear-ended a 2007 Freightliner semi driven by Lorenzo Sanso, 49, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, that was also going north on Highway 22 and waiting to turn left onto Ripley Street.

Sanso was taken to Meeker Memorial Hospital in Litchfield with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the State Patrol.

Deadrick was not injured.


Both drivers were wearing seat belts and alcohol was not a factor in the crash. Road conditions were wet at the time.
