Baldwin, WI : One dead, three injured in I-94 accident on Monday, December 12, 2016

One woman is dead and three others were injured after a multiple vehicle accident on I-94 at US 63N near Baldwin which occurred at 8:50 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 12, according to a press release sent out by the Wisconsin State Patrol Northwest Region Eau Claire Post at 11:53 a.m. A detour was set up from Exit 19 north to US 12, west to County T, the south to return drivers to I-94. The interstate has been reopened, according to reports on the police scanner.

"Right now, we know that it wasn't weather related because the roads were good in that area, so we aren't sure what caused the woman to go through the median and into oncoming traffic," Danielson said. "The alternate route has been working as it should, but we are thinking the interstate should be reopened in about half an hour."

According to the press release from the State Patrol:

"The details of the crash are as follows:

At approximately 8:45 a.m. today on I-94 in St. Croix County just west of Baldwin, an eastbound Chevy Equinox traveled through the median, and struck a west bound Toyota Prius and a Ford Fusion. The Chevy and the Toyota were then struck by a westbound semi-tractor trailer unit. The female driver of the Chevy was ejected from her vehicle. Two other subjects were trapped in the Toyota and needed to be extracted by recuse units. The ejected driver was transported to Regions hospital in St. Paul but succumbed to her injuries there. The two occupants of the Toyota were also transported to Regions with serious injuries. The driver of the Ford was transported to River Falls Hospital with minor injuries. I-94 westbound was shut down for the crash investigation and the posted alternate route was activated. The crash is still under investigation by the Wisconsin State Patrol. Assisting agencies included St. Croix Sherriffs Dep, Baldwin-Woodville Fire and EMS."

Danielson said that the name of the driver female driver will be released as soon as their family has been notified. However, the woman, who is a Wisconsin resident, is not from the area which Danielson said will take longer to contact family, so an announcement of the person's name isn't expected until later tonight or tomorrow morning.
