UPDATE: Ramp reopens after semi crash at 675 NB to 70 WB

Semi accident on the I-675 NB to I-70 WB ramp

CLARK COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) — A busy interstate ramp has reopened after an early morning semi accident shut it down for more than three hours.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says a semi hauling groceries flipped onto it’s side on the I-675 northbound to I-70 westbound ramp around 3 a.m. on Friday.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says the driver of the semi took the curve too fast, causing the accident.

“When you come down these exit ramps with the amount of weight, they’ve got to break it down,” Sgt. Jason Cadle with the OSP Springfield Post said. “Coming off a 70 mile per hour speed zone, the exit ramp here is governed for 35. you’ve got to make the adjustments to that weight.”

“That’s what it’s there for,” Cadle said. “When you don’t, this is what you end up with.”

The driver was pinned in the vehicle for a short time before being removed. He was taken to Miami Valley Hospital with undisclosed injuries.

CareFlight was put on standby after the crash, but did not come to the scene.

OSP says the driver will likely be cited for failure to control.
