PIQUA, Ohio (WDTN) — The Ohio State Highway Patrol says drowsy driving likely led to a two-vehicle crash in Shelby County.
It happened around 2:20 a.m. north of Piqua on I-75.
OSP says the driver of an SUV was traveling north on I-75 when he drifted off the left side of the road. The driver over-corrected and came back across the interstate, hitting another vehicle in the right lane.
The SUV rolled over several times. The driver was transported by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Four people were in the other vehicle. They suffered minor injuries and none of them were taken to area hospitals.
OSP troopers spoke with the driver of the SUV. They say it appears he may have fallen asleep behind the wheel, causing the crash.
The crash shutdown both lanes of I-75 northbound as crews worked to clear the scene. OSP says both lanes have since reopened.
OSP says speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash.
The driver of the SUV is from Tennessee. He was traveling to Michigan.
The people in the other vehicle are from Michigan and were returning home at the time of the crash.
