DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A crash involving over a dozen vehicles on I-75 northbound near Stanley Avenue Friday evening sent several people to the hospital.

Regional Dispatch tells 2 NEWS that a driver was attempting to get around traffic backup caused by an earlier crash near Wagner Ford Road around 4 pm. They were headed down the shoulder traveling at a high rate of speed when they collided with another vehicle, causing a chain reaction of accidents around 5:30 pm.

The driver took off from the scene and ran to MAHLE Behr on Webster Street, where someone called a medic to pick him up.

Officials could not immediately say exactly how many people were injured, but did say that all the injuries are non-life threatening.

The northbound lanes remain closed in the area until about 9:30 pm.
