RHINELANDER – A three-car crash Thursday morning near Rhinelander sent five people to the hospital and completely blocked traffic on Highway 8. It happened just before 11 a.m. near the highway’s intersection with North Rifle Road, just west of Rhinelander. An Oneida County Sheriff’s Deputy on scene said a westbound car crossed the center line, hitting an eastbound SUV. That sent the SUV spiraling into the ditch. A Chevrolet truck, also headed westbound, got caught in the collision and rolled over. Those taken to the hospital include two men, two women, and a teenage boy.
