1 driver cited in accident that pinned car under semi on I-75

UPDATE @4:15 p.m.: One driver was cited in an accident this afternoon that slowed traffic along Interstate 75, according to the state highway patrol.

Lleyton VanHoose, 19, of Cincinnati, was cited for failure to control after his Honda Civic hydroplaned on the wet interstate and crashed into a semi, pinning the car under the truck.

No one was injured in the accident, said Sgt. Tom Bloomberg.

UPDATE @2:10 p.m.:

A gray Honda Civic is trapped under the semi in the southbound lanes of Interstate 75 near Franklin.

The two left lanes on southbound I-75 are closed just south of the Ohio 123 exit.

Traffic is backed up to Ohio 725 near the Dayton Mall.

The car sustained substantial damage from being pinned under the semi.

Because of weather conditions, traffic is moving at about 60 mph in the northbound lanes on I-75.


Emergency crews are responding to an accident on southbound Interstate 75 near mile marker 33, according to the State Highway Patrol.

There was a report that a car was under a semi at 1:45 p.m. Long traffic delays are forming, the patrol said.

Dispatchers said everyone is out of their vehicles and there are no injuries.
