DUNN COUNTY, Wis. - A car traveling the wrong direction on Interstate 94 crashed head on with another car, killing three and injuring one.

According to a release from the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office, at about 5:44 p.m. on Thursday the Eau Claire State Patrol Post received multiple complaints of a black car that had crossed the median and was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of I-94 near milepost 37.

About three miles later near the Village of Knapp, the black car crashed head on with a gray car traveling eastbound. The Dunn County Sheriff’s Office said the gray car started on fire and all three people inside died. The driver of the black car was flown to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The names of the victims are being withheld pending notification of the family. The Wisconsin State Patrol is still investigating the crash.
