At least one motorist had to be airlifted by the Eagle III helicopter Wednesday night after a two-vehicle accident in Fish Creek.
According to a release from Gibraltar Fire and Rescue, crews responded to the accident on Highway 42 between Peninsula Players Road and Cottage Row just before 9 p.m. What was just a two-vehicle accident with injuries became a fire call when one of the vehicles became engulfed in flames. The injured people had already been removed from the vehicle and started to receive treatment from Door County Emergency Services when firefighters from Gibraltar, Baileys Harbor, and Egg Harbor started to work on the fire. The motorists were transported to Door County Medical Center to receive further treatment, one of which was airlifted by the Eagle III helicopter. Highway 42 was closed for at least two hours while work was being done by the fire department, Door County Emergency Services, and the Door County Sheriff's Department. We will have more on this story as it becomes available.
