Crash involving two semis shuts down part of I-90

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - An accident involving two semis left traffic on I-90 at a stand still Friday evening.

The crash happened in the westbound lanes of the I-90 bridge at about 5:45 p.m.

The Wisconsin State Patrol says a semi driven by 68-year-old Henry Alfieri of Turtle Lake, WI swerved to avoid a car stalled in the right lane without its flashers on.

A semi driven by 29-year-old Kristopher Shoeder of Elmwood, WI was traveling behind the first semi.  It also swerved to avoid the disabled vehicle and in turn struck the trailer of Alfieri's semi.

Shoeder's semi had extensive front end damage.

There were no injuries.

Traffic was backed up for miles while crews worked to clean up the crash.

Police blocked off the westbound lanes nearly a mile back from where the accident happened and detoured traffic for about an hour and a half.

All lanes of traffic opened up at about 7:20 p.m.
