NEW PARIS, Ohio (WDTN) – Multiple agencies responded to a crash near New Paris.
Two semi-trailers and a car collided around noon Thursday at the intersection of Interstate 70 eastbound and Ohio 127.
As of Thursday afternoon the ramp to I-70 east is closed and traffic is backed up on Ohio 127 and I-70 east, but they are not closed.
Between 100-150 gallons of diesel fuel spilled in the crash, though much of that fuel caused the fire to burn more intensely, according to the Preble County Emergency Management Agency who is on scene.
Some fuel was spilled onto the entrance of I-70, making it very slick for motorists.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Dayton branch is responding, along with multiple medics.
The extent of the injuries is unknown as of Thursday afternoon. 2 NEWS will update this story with more information as we get it.
