Dunn Co. (WQOW) - The State Patrol says the on-ramp of Highway 29 onto westbound I-94 has reopened.  Traffic is once again moving in that area.

-------------------------------------

Dunn Co. (WQOW) - A semi roll-over on an I-94 on-ramp will affect some commutes Friday morning. At 10:54 p.m. Thursday a semi carrying 185 calves struck a guardrail and rolled over at the on-ramp of Highway 29 onto westbound I-94. 

Crews were still on scene as of 5 a.m. Friday morning and the ramp is still shut down. The State Patrol is detouring all traffic to follow County Highway B to Menomonie and use exit 45.

Of the 185 calves, two escaped but were eventually caught. The owner is transferring the healthy calves onto another trailer. Some of the animals will have to be euthanized due to the injuries sustained in the crash. The driver of the semi was not injured.
