Two people were killed Monday night in a fiery crash of their car into a disabled semi on Interstate 90 in Monroe County, authorities reported.

At about 10 p.m. Monday, the Wisconsin State Patrol responded to a collision on I-90 at mile marker 26.5, near Sparta.

According to the report, a semi truck was disabled on the right shoulder of the highway when a Subaru Outback without its headlights on rear-ended the semi. The Subaru was pushed under the rear of the semi and started on fire, which then ignited the semi’s trailer.

The occupants of the Subaru — driver Jace M. Scholler, 24, and passenger Hannah E. Hood, 27 — were killed, the State Patrol said.

The driver of the semi has been identified only as a 30-year-old man who was not injured in the crash.
