Semi driver airlifted after crash into another semi

A collision between two semis early Thursday morning leaves both drivers with injuries. 

It happened around 2:30 a.m. on I-94 eastbound at Exit 115 according to the Wisconsin State Patrol.

A semi headed east hit another semi parked on the right shoulder of the interstate.

The crash forced the closure of both lanes of traffic, the WSP said, due to the position of the semis and spillage from the contents of the trailer.

Due to the location of the crash between the ramps, traffic was re-routed around using the off-ramp and on-ramp of Exit 115. 

The WSP said the driver of the parked semi went by ambulance to Black River Memorial Hospital. 

The other driver was flown by Gundersen Air to Gundersen Health System in La Crosse.
