Disabled vehicle leads to semi crash, closed section of I-90

Posted:
TOWN OF CAMPBELL, Wis. (WXOW) - The Wisconsin State Patrol says a disabled vehicle on the Dresbach Bridge on I-90 led to two semis colliding Friday evening.

The collision closed the westbound lanes of I-90 for approximately 90 minutes while debris and the vehicles could be removed.

A release from State Patrol Sgt. Lori Floyd said the disabled vehicle was in the right lane of traffic on the bridge without any flashers on.

One semi, driven by 68-year-old Henry Alfieri of Turtle Lake, Wis., braked and moved into the left lane of traffic to avoid the vehicle.  A second semi, driven by 29-year-old Kristopher Schoeder of Elmwood, Wis., swerved to avoid the vehicle. When he did, he hit the back of Alfieri's trailer with his cab. 

Both Alfieri's trailer and Schoeder's tractor were damaged.  Neither driver was injured.

Traffic was re-routed through La Crosse while the accident cleanup took place.
