Traffic began flowing on westbound Interstate 94 near Eau Claire, Wis, early Sunday morning after the road was closed for more than 11 hours because of a fatal crash.

The scene was cleared by 4 a.m. Sunday.

No further details of the crash were available.

Five area fire departments and several police agencies, including Eau Claire police and county deputies, assisted the patrol.
