A semi-tractor and trailer lie overturned on I-75 on Tuesday morning. Lt. Joseph Gephart of the Ohio Highway Patrol said that the driver of the truck was northbound on the Interstate around 5 a.m. when for an unknown reason, he lost control, drifted off the right side of the road and overturned near the 84 mile marker. The driver was not seriously injured and not transported for medical attention. He is reportedly from North Carolina. Gephart said that the roadway will be reduced to one lane in the vicinity of the crash until cleanup is complete. ODOT has been called to the scene to inspect and repair the guardrail. The driver is expected to be cited for failure to control.
