Sources are reporting a serious accident near Roscoe. 
There are several vehicles involved a serious accident on I-90 near mile marker 5 3/4, near Roscoe.
A SUV is pinned under a semi.  Heavy extrication was being requested.
One person who is approx. 39 years old, is reported to be injured,
Possible life threatening injuries. (Unconfirmed)
A medical helicopter has been requested to the scene.
Traffic is backed up for miles.  Avoid the area.
UPDATE: They requested the medical helicopter to the scene, the medical helicopter was not able to fly, due to the weather. This sounds like a very serious accident scene, DO NOT attempt to get on I-90. This is a very bad scene and traffic is backed up for awhile.


Cheri Barefield   said “I saw the initial accident. It was minor…a car side swiped the semi in heavy rain. The problem is they BOTH stopped in the middle of the interstate! 2 lanes! And traffic was coming up on them fast! Very dangerous situation! I don’t know why they didn’t get off to the side of the road…it was minor damage. I bet someone came up on it and rammed right into them. So sad!”
