BLAIR, Wis. (WKBT) — A three-vehicle crash involving a milk semi truck on US 53 near Blair closed both lanes of the highway for a time from Hwy.

95 in Blair to Hwy.93 in Galesville, according to the Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Office.
The milk semi was southbound on Hwy.

53 and was involved in a collision with a pickup turning left from 53 to County Hwy. CC, pushing the pickup into the northbound lane. The milk truck landed on its side in the ditch, but later was righted and towed.
A large truck pulling a fifth wheeler hit the pickup, according to the sheriff’s office.
Two of four people involved were taken to a hospital, although nobody received life-threatening injuries, authorities said.
One lane was opened by 6 p.m., but the Trempealeau sheriff’s office asked that people avoid the area for a while.
Responding agencies besides the Trempealeau sheriff’s office included the Wisconsin State Patrol, the Ettrick Fire Department and the Galesville Fire Department, which blocked 53 at Galesville.
