Semi crash on I-70 near Arlington Road exit in Brookville

BROOKVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) — All lanes are open once again after a semi crash on I-70 in Brookville early on Friday morning.

Investigators check on a semi crash on I-70 in Brookville.

The crash happened just before midnight on I-70 near the Arlington Road and the S.R. 49 exits.

The Ohio State Patrol says the semi was the only vehicle involved in the crash. The driver told troopers he was driving westbound on I-709 when he swerved to avoid a car that came into his lane, ran off the road and flipped.

The semi ended up on its side in the median, blocking lanes of I-70 in both directions.

OSP shut down lanes in both directions during clean up of the crash. Everything was open and flowing by 4:30 a.m.

The driver was not hurt. OSP has not released information about any potential charges yet.

The semi was hauling computer parts.
