NEW PARIS, Ohio (WDTN) - A truck hauling Heineken beer crashed Thursday morning, causing a major back-up on eastbound Interstate 70.
The driver was actually traveling westbound in Preble County near the Ohio/Indiana line when a blown tire sent his rig out of control and across the median, striking an eastbound Honda van.
The semi flipped on its side and came to rest on the ramp of a freeway rest stop.
The woman driving the van and the man driving the truck were both taken to Reid Memorial Hospital in Richmond, Ind. with what Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers said were minor injuries.
The accident shut down the eastbound lanes for a short time, stopping traffic past the state line.
