In scanner traffic, we heard first responders say that the vehicle went into the ditch, struck a sign and knocked it into the highway. We also heard first responders say that as much as 100 gallons of fuel may have been spilled.

Traffic cameras show that traffic is being diverted off the highway around State Route 4 in Enon.

The crash was reported just after 6:15 a.m.

We are working to learn more and will update this story with any new information.
