Friday crash -- Cars collide on I-94 east of Hudson

A station wagon lays overturned on the eastbound lanes of I-94 following a crash just west of Exit 4 on Friday morning. The accident caused a long back-up of traffic.

At least two cars were involved in a crash on the eastbound lanes of Interstate 94, just east of Exit 4 in Hudson, at about 10:30 a.m. Friday.

A station wagon lay on its roof in the middle of the eastbound lanes when emergency responders arrived on the scene.

A sedan with front-end damaged was pulled to the right shoulder of the freeway.

A St. Croix EMS ambulance was at the scene, along with Hudson fire engines, law enforcement officers and tow trucks.

The overturned car was removed from the highway within a half-hour of the crash.

Eastbound traffic was narrowed to one inside lane while the crash was being cleared, resulting a long back-up.
