BUTLER TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) — A busy stretch of interstate has reopened temporarily after a semi crash shut it down on Tuesday morning.
A semi flipped on its side just before 6 a.m. on Tuesday on the ramp from I-70 eastbound to I-75 northbound. That crash shut down the ramp.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol says the semi likely took the turn too fast, overturning on the drivers’ side.
The driver suffered reported non-life threatening injuries. He was taken to Grandview Medical Center for treatment.
OSP says the semi was hauling frozen foods. There were no hazardous materials on board.
Crews moved the semi from the middle of the road and onto the right shoulder.
OSP says the ramp has reopened, allowing rush hour traffic to pass. Once traffic slows down, OSP says the ramp will be closed again to allow for removal of the semi.
Another refrigerated semi will be brought in for the cargo to be off-loaded, before the first semi is turned upright and removed. Crews on the scene say it could be 10-11 a.m. on Tuesday before the ramp closes again for removal of the crashed semi.
The crash remains under investigation.
