- A Marathon County man died when his ATV got in a crash on Highway 29.
Deputies were called at 9:42 yesterday morning with a report of the accident in the town of Rib Falls.
The man riding the ATV was dead at the scene.
He had been heading north on Cardinal Lane and went across Highway 29, apparently headed for 9th Avenue.
Instead, the ATV collided with two cars on Highway 29.
One of the drivers was taken to Aspirus Wausau Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The name of the man riding the ATV will not be released until family members can be told about the death.
Traffic on Highway 29 was disrupted for a while after the crash, but was reopened for normal traffic around 2:00 this morning.
The Marathon County Sheriff's office spent most of the night cleaning up a car accident near the city of Edgar.
The Sherriff's office confirmed to Newswatch 12 Tuesday morning that one person died as a result of that crash.
It happened Monday night just before 9:45 p.m.
All lanes on Highway 29 near County Road S were blocked for several hours because of the crash.
The accident was finally cleared after 2 Tuesday morning.
All lanes are now open.
