Three semi-trucks crash on I-94 resulting in death of driver

One driver was killed in an accident involving three semi-trucks on a Wisconsin highway in the early hours of January 7th, according to The Leader-Telegram.

Investigations are ongoing in the highway accident that left Steven A. Danziesen, 59, dead and two other drivers injured. State Patrol Lt. Dori Petznick said that it will take more time to determine what caused the multi-truck pile up, as many factors likely contributed.

Initial reports suggest that Danziesen hit the back of another truck driven by, Abdi Omar Diriye, 27, that was traveling slowly in the right lane on I-94 with his flashers on due to mechanical issues. Shon A. Stefan, 48, then clipped the back of Danziesen’s truck and subsequently crashed into the median.

Stefan and Diriye were taken to receive medical treatment at the Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire. Stefan was reported to have critical injuries and Diriye sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
