TIPP CITY — A vehicle that crashed through a barrier wall on Interstate 75 brought traffic in both directions to a halt on Monday evening.

The crash occurred around 7:30 p.m. when Derricka Turner, age 46 of Dayton, hit the center retaining wall with enough impact to break the wall, sending debris across the highway in both directions.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Turner was traveling southbound on I-75 when she drove off the right side of the roadway, over-corrected and struck the center median wall. Turner’s SUV flipped upside down in the crash and came to rest on the west berm.

Turner has been cited with failure to control. She was taken to Miami Valley Hospital Monday night with reported non-life threatening injuries and later released.

The driver of another vehicle that struck debris from the crash, Richard Workman of Piqua, was treated at Upper Valley Medical Center. His injuries were not reportedly life-threatening.

Multiple medics from Tipp City were dispatched, as well as Tipp City fire and police.

Traffic backed up in both directions as emergency workers worked to clear the vehicle and debris. Some traffic was re-routed from State Route 571, up County Road 25-A and back onto I-75 at the Camp Troy exit while other vehicles were forced to sit until the crash was cleared.
