Wednesday afternoon, June 19, 2019, Racine County Sheriff Schmaling gave a press release statement regarding the preliminary post-accident investigation results of the crash Jeff Johnson was involved earlier that day. If you did not listen to the statement, it was recorded and will do a brief recap-

“Another semi-tractor trailer traveling southbound on I-94 near 50th road made a lane change and while doing so, struck a construction barrier which caused the driver to apparently over correct his steering and ultimately strike the temporary concrete median wall that separates the south & north bound traffic pushing the median wall into the northbound traffic where it was struck by 3 northbound passenger vehicles. It was at this point when driver Jeff Johnson came upon the fiery crash scene at which time he chose to avoid collision with the other crashed vehicles by veering hard across all 3 lanes of traffic crashing into and over the interstate overpass wall where his vehicle burst into flames and the other semi driver’s (Jeff Johnson) tragic death.”

In this press release statement, Racine County Sheriff Schmaling stated Jeff’s actions taken to avoid collision with the other crashed vehicles were nothing short of heroic and his actions certainly saved additional injury and/or death to the passengers inside those 3 cars.

Jeff Johnson is the father of 5 children and was recently married to Lillian.

Our thought and prayers are most definitely with our mighty road warrior, Jeffrey Johnson and his family and loved ones.
