Original Story

A crash has closed Interstate 94 near mile marker 82 in Minnesota.  In an unrelated crash, two people are being treated for injuries suffered in a separate, high-speed crash along Interstate 94 west of Fargo.

 A Cass County deputy clocked a car at more than 100 miles per hour near Casselton. The driver wouldn't stop, then tried to exit the freeway at the Wheatland-Chaffee exit -- that's when the crash happened.

The male driver was Lifeflighted to a Fargo hospital. A female passenger was transported by ground ambulance.

A second crash involving as many as 3 semis has shut down both east & west bound lanes of I-94 in west-central Minnesota.

The crash happened about 6:30 this morning at mile marker 82 near Evansville in Douglas County. 

State Patrol Sergeant Jesse Grabow says there's at least one injury.  He says to expect traffic delays, and try to avoid the area until the scene is cleared.
