VANDALIA, Ohio (WDTN) – A semi driver who crashed on I-75 early Friday told Ohio State Highway Patrol he may have fallen asleep.

The crash happened just after 1:00 a.m. on I-75 north near the Montgomery-Miami County line.

The semi drifted off the highway, over the guardrail and overturned in a ditch.

The driver was wearing a seat belt and was not seriously hurt. Troopers say he’s lucky.

They say it’s important for all drivers to make sure they are rested before hitting the road.
