TIPP CITY, Ohio (WDTN) - The semi drivers killed in a fiery crash on I-75 were found thrown from their vehicles according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Troopers said Dial Jhutti of Brampton, Ontario and Michael Moore of Pierceton, Indiana were pronounced dead by the Miami County Coroner's Office Wednesday night.
Loretta Stotler of Sidney, Ohio was taken to Upper Valley Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries after her car was pushed by the semi, according to the State Highway Patrol Piqua Post.
Five other drivers involved in the crash were treated for minor injuries at the scene.
Ohio State Highway Patrol says the woman in the car caught between the two burning semis is lucky to be alive.
"She was in the passenger vehicle that initially was struck and her car had actually caught fire," said Sgt. Joseph Gebhart with the Ohio State Highway Patrol. "We feel very fortunate that she was able to escape a fatality from that crash."
A wall of flames filled part of southbound I-75 Wednesday night after Ohio State Troopers say a semi crashed into a car starting a chain reaction.
Emergency crews shut down much of the highway for four hours because of the flames.
Drivers on the other side of the highway saw bursts of fire leap over the median.
"I was hysterical," said Vicki Hart. "It was horrifying. I've never seen anything like that in my whole life. It was terrible."
It took ODOT crews nearly 21 hours 20 hours to clear the scene and make asphalt repairs.
Troopers say with construction on I-75 during the holiday weekend, drivers need to keep theirs eyes open at all times.
