On April 25th at approximately 10:30am a two-vehicle crash occurred on I94 westbound near mile marker .25 on the St. Croix River bridge. Two lanes of traffic were closed for construction, the two left lanes were open for westbound traffic. A passenger car stopped in the lane of traffic to allow another vehicle to merge causing traffic behind it to slow suddenly. A school bus transporting students from DeLong Middle School in Eau Claire rear-ended an empty CMV tanker trailer. All vehicles involved were moved to the closed lanes of traffic. Six individuals on the school bus were treated on scene for minor injuries. Two individuals were transported to a local hospital for further evaluation for minor injuries.
