(Whitewater Township, Oh.) - The ramp from northbound Interstate 275 to westbound Interstate 74 was closed to traffic for several hours overnight.
The 270-degree turn ramp was shut down overnight following a crash involving an overturned semi at about 9:00 p.m. Monday. WLWT-TV reports that the truck was carrying 25,000 pounds of baby products.
The truck driver was trapped in the truck, and was later taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
The ramp reopened at around 5:00 a.m. Tuesday, about eight hours after it closed.
This is not the first accident of this type on that interstate ramp. The looping turn can be treacherous for large trucks which do not heed the road signs cautioning a speed of 25 MPH on the ramp.
