BETHEL TOWNSHIP — Rescue crews and Miami County deputies responded to a reported head-on crash involving a semi and an SUV on Wednesday evening but fortunately there were no injuries.
The crash occurred in the 9000 block of St. Rt. 201 around 8:30 p.m. when a semi, with a trailer loaded with truck toppers, was attempting to back into the driveway of a business. The driver of a southbound Ford Bronco apparently failed to see the truck in time and crashed into the trailer.
Bethel Township fire department and rescue squad responded to the scene but neither driver was injured.
The crash remains under investigation by Miami County Sheriff’s Deputies. The driver of the Bronco was arrested at the scene on an outstanding warrant that is unrelated to the crash.
St. Rt. 201 was closed for about an hour as the crash was cleared from the roadway.
