NEENAH - The Winnebago County Sheriff's Office estimates about 95 percent of the vehicles impounded after Sunday's 131-vehicle pileup will be totaled.
The sheriff's office has started to release vehicles taken to a lot on Tullar Road after the crash, which happened shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday on Interstate 41 near Neenah. The crash, which left one person dead and 71 injured, is believed to be among the largest in Wisconsin's history.
The process of giving vehicles back to their owners is expected to take a few days, the sheriff's office said in a statement. Owners will be notified as vehicles are systematically released.
Several local wrecker companies that spent hours working in the brutal conditions Sunday have teamed up to help get vehicles released to owners, the sheriff's office said.
Anyone with information about the crash or specific questions about a vehicle involved should call the sheriff's office at 920-236-7657.
