WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) -- The person killed in a crash during Tuesday’s snowstorm was a young man from Wausau. Marathon County Sheriff’s investigators say 20-year-old Cody Schuster died at the scene of the crash, on Highway K just north of Hillcrest Drive.

Another man received minor injuries in the crash, which happened at 4:14 p.m. when travel was extremely difficult around the Wausau area.

This was the only serious accident during the snowy afternoon. Sheriff Scott Parks says the county’s dispatch center received 160 calls for emergency services and handled over 40 crashes. The day included everything from cars sliding into the ditch to fender benders, even a stuck school bus. Travelers found it very difficult on hills such as Wausau’s Bridge Street, where traffic was often at a standstill.
