MONROE COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) -- One lane of interstate was closed for several hours after a crash on I-94 just outside of Tomah on Sunday.

The Wisconsin State Patrol says it happened just after 8:00 a.m. in Monroe County near Mile Marker 145.

The State Patrol says one semi-trailer truck hit another from behind causing a fire in a trailer that was being pulled.

One of the drivers, 39-year-old Steven Flynn of Green Isle, Minnesota was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The other driver was not hurt.
