Four accidents in seven minutes. Gee whiz.

Sounds more like pinball than driving.

An Appleton, Wisconsin man  was involved in four crashes in seven minutes.

The Wisconsin State Patrol says the 23-year-old was driving in Outagamie County early Sunday morning when he struck a guardrail (1).

He then rear-ended two vehicles and continued driving (2).

Moments later he struck a traffic standard in the median of a county highway and ended up eastbound in the westbound lane (3). There he struck three vehicles head-on (4).

At that point the man's vehicle came to a stop. Emergency personnel responded and took him to a hospital to treat him for life-threatening injuries. No one else was hurt.

The crashes took place in a four-mile span.

The State Patrol says alcohol may have been a factor.
