The crash happened just after 3 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of I-70 near US 127.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says a large gust of wind forced the semi, on its way from Illinois to Columbus, off the road and into the grass. The driver was unable to get the semi back on the road, and the semi flipped on its side.

OSP says the right lane of I-70 eastbound will be closed until the semi can be turned upright and removed.

The driver of the semi wasn’t hurt.
