Story By Associated Press

MENOMONIE - Horrible weather in northwestern Wisconsin caused two semis to crash, killing one of the drivers.

State Patrol Sergeant David Fish says one semi rolled over on slippery Interstate 94 near Menomonie, and was struck by the second semi early this morning.

The driver of the first semi was killed.

Parts of northwestern Wisconsin are buried under more than a foot of new snow.

A lot of school districts in that part of the state canceled classes.

The National Weather Service reported 14 inches of snow fell in Ellsworth with 9 inches in River Falls and 8 inches in Ashland.

Utility crews worked to restore power to hundreds of customers in the region.
