GRAND CHUTE, WI (WTAQ) - A pair of crashes on Monday morning left three people injured.

The State Patrol says the crashes occurred around 9 a.m. on northbound Highway 41, just south of Gillett Street in Grand Chute.

Authorities say the first crash happened when an SUV went off the right side of the road and rolled over several times, before coming to rest against a tree. The driver, a 66-year-old Appleton woman, wasn't wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the vehicle into the tree. She was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

While other vehicles were slowing down to avoid that crash, a car rear-ended a pickup truck. A 56-year-old Appleton man and a 24-year-old Omro woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say neither crash was weather-related.
