-Officials were called to a crash on Stein Boulevard in Eau Claire around 5:00 p.m. on Thursday evening after a driver ran into a power transformer.

Eau Claire police officers on the scene told News 18 that no one was injured in that crash. Xcel Energy says about 30 customers will be without power for a couple of hours as crews repair that transformer.

 

-A semi driver crashed into a concrete median on I-94 in Eau Claire late Thursday night.

The Wisconsin State Patrol says the 35-year-old driver from California is OK. The semi was traveling westbound on the interstate, right over Lowes Creek Road around 11:30 p.m., when it veered off the highway, crossed over the median and hit a concrete barrier on the other side. The semi lost most of its cargo, and its gas tank was ruptured. Crews spent much of the night cleaning up debris and spraying down gas that had leaked across the pavement.

Both sides of the interstate were down to one lane until 6:30 a.m. Friday morning, as crews worked to remove the trailer and debris.

 

-A man accused of killing a UW-Stout International student has pleaded not guilty.

Cullen Osburn, 27, made the plea Thursday in Dunn County Court. He is charged with felony murder and aggravated battery in the death of Hussain Saeed Alnahdi. Investigators say Alnahdi died from a brain injury following a fight in downtown Menomonie last October. A female witness told police she saw Osburn hit Alnahdi more than once.

Osburn’s cash bond was reduced from $75,000 to $25,000. Osburn will be back in the Dunn County courtroom on June 19th for a status hearing. Any additional motions the defense may want to file will happen at that time.

 

-SWAT officers were sent to a home in southeastern Sheboygan County after a woman called 911 and said she had killed someone and was suicidal.

Authorities say they responded to a house in the Town of Lima about 2 p.m. Thursday after the 38-year-old woman also told dispatchers she was armed, then hung up.

Officers stayed on the scene until about 5:15 p.m. and have not yet released additional information about the incident.
