VERONA, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say heavy fog is apparently a factor in a fatal crash on a southern Wisconsin highway that involves about 20 vehicles.

Dane County sheriff's spokeswoman Elise Schaffer says one person died and six others were injured in the pileup on eastbound Highway 18/151 just south of Verona Monday morning. One of the six injured was transported to the hospital by helicopter. Sheriff's officials say poor visibility due to heavy patches of fog is believed to be a contributing factor.

The sheriff's office says uninjured drivers and passengers were taken to the Verona Fire Department.

The eastbound lanes are expected to be closed for the next five to six hours.
