Fed-Ex Semi-Truck Tips Over

(5/28/14) Most of Interstate-94 near Eau Claire was still closed this morning, after a Fed-Ex semi-truck tipped over and started on fire.

  It happened around 11:45 last night near the Highway 37 exit.  The State Patrol said the truck was going east when it hit a guardrail.  One trailer was disconnected, and a second one was ignited.  That trailer was engulfed in flames when fire-fighters arrived. Early reports said the trucker was not seriously injured.   Debris from the crash was thrown into the westbound lanes of I-94, so the entire freeway was closed on Eau Claire's west side for about three hours.  The right westbound lane re-opened around three a-m, but the other lanes in both directions remained closed as of 6:30.  Eastbound traffic was using a detour at Highway 312.
