Overturned semi blocking entrance to I-75 NB

ROSSFORD, Ohio (WTVG) - An overturned semi is causing some major traffic concerns on I-75 NB just north of Buck Road in Rossford. The accident has blocked the on-ramp to the highway causing a backup of traffic in the area. I-75 NB is shut down between SR 795 and Buck Road.

According to police, the semi driver was driving in the right lane when he fell asleep, driving his truck into a barrier wall and dragging the tractor-trailer, ultimately causing it to flip over.

There were no other vehicles involved and no injuries reported but the truck leaked about 100 gallons of diesel fuel.

No word yet on what may have caused the accident or if the driver suffered any injuries as a result. There is currently no word on when the road will reopen.

We will update this post as information becomes available.
