Official: Semi explodes on I-94 in southeastern Wisconsin

CALEDONIA, Wis. (AP) — Authorities say a semi crashed and exploded and ignited other vehicles on Interstate 94 in southeastern Wisconsin.

Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling told The Journal Times that there were multiple victims in the accident Wednesday, but did not describe the extent of their injuries.

A WTMJ-TV photographer who witnessed the crash says the semi jumped the median on I-94 near Highway 20 in Caledonia about 11 a.m., caught fire and exploded. The photographer says at least two other vehicles were set on fire.

All lanes of the interstate are closed. A Flight for Life helicopter has been called to the scene.
