Milk spilled from overturned semi-truck crash in Madison County


Madison County - The Ohio State Highway Patrol is on the scene of a crash involving tractor-trailer truck carrying 6,000 gallons of milk in Madison County.

Troopers said the accident happened around 3:30 a.m. Friday on U.S. 38 at Old Xenia Road.

The driver of the truck was traveling north on U.S. 38, took a curve too fast and lost control of the vehicle, according to OSHP.

The semi-truck then struck a utility pole and took out several power lines before landing on its side.

Authorities said emergency responders transported the driver to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Milk spilled from the truck onto the roadway which forced one lane of U.S. 38 to close while crews work to clear the scene.

Troopers say no charges have been filed and they are investigating this incident as a distracted driving crash.

It is unclear if there are any power outages in the area, but troopers say that AEP will have to come to the scene to repair the pole.
