Flying sawblades close interstate

TOMAH, Wis. (AP) -- Here's something you don't want to run into on the highway: flying sawblades.

A stretch of interstate in Wisconsin was shut down last night after a semi lost several industrial-sized sawblades.

One of them flew into a tanker truck. The State Patrol says the damaged tanker spilled a large amount of diesel fuel on Interstate 94.

Troopers say ten cars and a boat were damaged in the incident, but no one was seriously injured.

The interstate was closed for several hours.
