Crews shut down highway ramp leading to 53 Bypass after crash

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Investigators have a ramp blocked off because of a crash Friday afternoon.

Squad cars from the Eau Claire County Sheriff's Office could be seen blocking the ramp that leads eastbound U.S. Highway 12 traffic onto the 53 Bypass north. There was no immediate word on injuries, or how many vehicles were involved.

The Wisconsin State Patrol says there is a traffic backup on highway 53 north at Clairemont Avenue, and that drivers should find alternate routes.

A tweet from Eau Claire police at just before 3:30 p.m. Friday reads "Crash on Hwy 53. EB Hwy 12 ramp to NB Hwy 53 is closed. Avoid the area."
