A collision with a deer on Interstate 94 led to a chain-reaction crash involving 10 vehicles during Thursday’s morning rush hour in Hudson.

The Wisconsin State Patrol said the crash occurred at 5:50 a.m. in westbound traffic near the Hudson bridge over the St. Croix River. No injuries were reported, but five of the vehicles involved had to be towed from the scene.

The crash backed up westbound traffic beyond Mile Post 5 in St. Croix County. The scene was cleared by 7:12 a.m., according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
