MONTICELLO, Wis. (AP) — Authorities say 10 people were hurt in Green County when a semitrailer rear-ended a sports utility vehicle that had slowed down for deer crossing the highway.

Green County Sheriff Jeff Skatrud says the crash occurred shortly before 6 a.m. Friday on Highway 69 between Monticello and New Glarus, about 30 miles southwest of Madison.

Skatrud says nine occupants of the SUV were transported to hospitals. Officials are not releasing information about their conditions. The semi driver was also taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

The highway was closed until 1:30 p.m.
