Winds cause semis to overturn on area roads

High winds caused at least three semi trailers to overturn during last night's storms as they swept through the region.

A semi driver suffered minor injuries after his vehicle overturned on U.S. 68 just north of Ohio 41 in Springfield Twp. State troopers said the semi was blown over into the median after windy conditions forced the vehicle off the road. The driver was transported to Springfield Regional Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.

Tipp City authorities responded to an overturned semi on Ginghamsburg-Frederick Road near Peters Pike around 11 p.m.

Tipp City Fire Lt. Doug Lohnes said the driver was traveling west on Ginghamsburg-Frederick, when a gust of wind pushed the semi off the road. The semi overturned and struck a utility pole, Lohnes said.

The driver was not injured and firefighters were not sure how many people were affected by the downed utility pole. Dayton Power and Light was called to fix the downed pole.

The Ohio Highway Patrol responded to a crash involving a semi on Interstate 75 south between Ohio 123 and Ohio 122 around 11:30 p.m. Troopers said the driver was travelling on the highway when heavy winds and rain forced the driver off the highway and into a ditch. The driver suffered minor injuries and was transported to Atrium Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.
