DOUGLAS COUNTY — Two people were sent to the hospital on Monday, Feb. 20, after three vehicles collided on Interstate-94 due to icy road conditions.

A 2006 Toyota Scion XA — driven by an unknown female driver out of Hudson, Wisconsin — collided with a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee on Interstate-94 between milepost 105 and 106 in the Hudson Township at 5:32 p.m.

Carrie Kelly, 57, of Oakdale — the driver of the Jeep — was being pulled out of the freeway's ditch by tow truck driver Randy Gau, 52, of Alexandria, when the eastbound traveling Scion collided with the Jeep and the 2014 Ram Tow Truck.

Road conditions were snowy/icy, according to the accident report.
