Racine---According to the Racine County Sheriff's Office---the rollover crash on I-94 Wednesday morning was caused by a pickup truck driven by a Kenosha man with a suspended license.  The investigation found that the still unidentified 31-year-old pickup truck driver began to change lanes to pass a vehicle in front of him, and that's when he struck the northbound semi tanker.  The semi tanker swerved---went through the median and struck a second semi-truck--- with a trailer---traveling southbound on I-94. Sheriff’s officials say the second semi flipped onto its side and came to rest on the interstate.  Heavy damage was reported to all vehicles involved and the median wall. 

The semi drivers were treated and released with minor injuries. The driver of the pickup truck received stitches for cuts on his head, face, and knee. He was issued citations for failure to maintain control of vehicle, operating while suspended, non-registration of his vehicle, and not having car insurance.
