A number of vehicles, including several semis are involved. The accident occurred in the northbound lanes, where at least one semi burst into flames.

Officials say a box truck blew a tire while traveling in the northbound lane of I-94, lost control and sideswiped a semi-truck. The semi-truck hit the center wall and light pole, which fell across the southbound lanes of I-94 and struck three vehicles in the opposite lanes.

The semi-truck burst into flames, but the fire has since been extinguished.

Traffic is backed up in both directions as officials attempt to detour traffic around the accident. Officials expect the northbound lanes to remain closed for some time as they continue to clear debris.

Only minor injuries have been reported, police say.
