One person died when two semi-tractor trailers collided on Interstate 75 in Tipp City during white-out conditions Thursday morning.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, one semi rear-ended another semi, lost control and struck the median wall in the crash on southbound I-75. The driver of the at-fault semi was taken to Upper Valley Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. A passenger in the sleeper section was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the semi that was struck was not hurt.

FIRST REPORT

Interstate 75 is extremely slick with at least one fatal crash reported and multiple slide-offs.

A fatal crash was reported on southbound I-75 between the 69 and 70 mile markers in the Tipp City area shortly before 4 a.m., according to reports. 

Our crew in the area said the highway is extremely slick, and video shows the highway is a sheet of ice. Anyone on highways should use extreme caution.

We are working to learn more about the fatal crash.
