OSSEO, Wis. (AP) -- The State Patrol has identified two people from Michigan killed in a fiery interstate crash involving three semitrailers in western Wisconsin.

Authorities say 47-year-old Clara Lee Ann Wonsowicz of Brighton, Mich., and 46-year-old Thomas John Scott Brown of Ypsilanti, Mich., died in the crash on Interstate 94 in Trempealeau County Wednesday.

The patrol says Wonsowicz was driving a semi that crossed the median near Osseo and struck two semis traveling in the opposite direction. Brown was a passenger in the semi that crossed the median. Two of the semis became engulfed in flames.

The driver of a semi owned by Nationwide Distributor was taken to an area Mayo Clinic-affiliated treatment center with minor injuries. A passenger in the third semi received minor injuries, but was not transported.
