According to the Minnesota State Patrol, a 2017 Peterbuilt truck driven by Ryan Higley, 48, of Rushford, was going east in the left lane of I-94 when a 2018 International plow truck driven by Jeremy Glawe, 37, of Hoffman, pulled off of the right shoulder to cross the freeway.

The collision of the trucks caused eastbound traffic on I-94 to be detoured to the exit 115 interchange off ramp and then back to the on ramp. The interstate reopened at approximately 9:30 p.m.

Higley and Glawe were both taken by North Ambulance to Alomere Health in Alexandria with non-life-threatening injuries.
