Local News

PREBLE COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) — Both eastbound and westbound lanes of I-70 in Preble County have been cleared after an overturned semi shut it down near Route 127 Tuesday afternoon.

Authorities told 2 NEWS the contents of the semi spilled and required Hazmat to aid in the clean up. Indiana State Troopers are helping divert traffic from eastbound I-70 while clean up continues.

Our crews on the scene saw a wrecker lifting the tipped semi and working to haul it away so that traffic could resume as normal. Traffic is now moving at a normal pace.

This is a developing story. 2 NEWS and WDTN.com are working to learn more and will keep you updated when more information is available.
