I-75 South, ramp reopens in Dayton following crash

Interstate 75 South has reopened near state Route 4 in Dayton after a semitruck crash early Wednesday morning temporarily closed the southbound lanes.

The I-75 South ramp to state Route 48/Main Street/Grand Avenue also has reopened, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation.

Around 2:23 a.m., a semitruck was traveling south on the highway when the driver lost control near the state Route 4 split, according to a Dayton police crash report.

The semitruck hit the guard rail and the driver overcorrected, causing the semi to tip onto its side.

A medic responded to the scene, but the driver refused treatment, according to Montgomery County Regional Dispatch.

Dispatch records also indicated there was a hazmat situation due to a possible fuel spill.
