HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) – Interstate 75 is back open four hours after a collision between a semi truck and a car Monday evening.

The crash happened around 6:45 p.m. in the southbound lanes at Benchwood Road.  Only one lane was open, so traffic was down to a crawl.

Troopers say the truck was slowing down to avoid traffic when its load, a 48,000 pound coil of steel shifted.

There were no injuries.
