DAYTON: Wrong Way Driver Crashes into Oil Tanker on I-75

“Fireball Erupts over Dayton”

DAYTON, OHIO (April 30, 2017) – A wrong way driver crashed into an gas tanker on Sunday on Interstate 75, according to a local news source. (map)

The accident happened on the southbound side of Interstate 75 on Sunday, when a car got onto the freeway the wrong way and crashed into a gasoline tanker, triggering a massive fireball almost immediately.

The driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene, and the driver of the tanker truck escaped with minor injuries. The fire shut down both sides of I-75 for an indeterminate amount of time as crews begin to assess the damage to the freeway and start repairs. The accident remains under open investigation at this time.
