Casselton, ND (WDAY TV) -- A semi collision on I-94 slowed traffic, spilled hundreds of gallons of oil and tied up area law enforcement for the entire afternoon.

The accident happened just west of Casselton. Troopers say two semis were westbound. One of them nearly went off the road, over corrected and hit the semi you see in the median.

The driver was hauling drilling oil. It's used in western North Dakota and is not hazardous.

Dave Wolf - ND State Trooper: "Both drivers indicate the one semi went off the roadway and came across in the other semis lane, causing him to go into the median."

Both drivers were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. No decision yet if any citations will be given.
