A serious car accident on Interstate 94 in Milwaukee involved a 23-year-old wrong-way driver, and a 31-year-old off-duty Milwaukee police officer.

The police officer was hit by an oncoming vehicle traveling the wrong way on I-94. The accident took place last Wednesday, September 5. The impact of the collision caused both drivers to become trapped in their vehicles. Paramedics had to remove them, and both sustained severe injuries.

An ambulance transported the officer to a local hospital where doctors listed him in critical condition. The driver of the other vehicle was also taken to a hospital to be treated. The wrong-way driver had been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.
