TRENTON, Wis. (AP) -- Police say a large hatch of mayflies may have caused a three-vehicle crash on a Wisconsin road.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports (http://bit.ly/1jS8JBl ) the road had become slick from the mayflies Sunday evening, causing at least one of the drivers involved in the crash to lose control of her vehicle. They also said visibility was limited at the time of the crash.

Two people were injured in the crash, but only one person was taken to a local hospital.

Mayflies are insects that reproduce in areas with high-quality water.
