The crash happened around 8:30 a.m. on I-70 East near the 35.6 mile marker and shut down the right two lanes between I-75 and state Route 202 for several hours, according to the Huber Heights Police Division and Ohio Department of Transportation.

Speed does not appear to be a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation police said.

Scanner traffic indicated the crash led to a diesel spill.
