TIPP CITY — A skid steer that was being hauled on a trailer being pulled by a pickup truck came loose from the trailer Sunday afternoon on Interstate 75 and crashed through the concrete median barrier, causing the closure of north and southbound lanes.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSP), the one-vehicle crash occurred at mile marker 69 on I-75 on Sunday, July 16, at approximately 2:39 p.m. The crash involved a pickup truck that was pulling a trailer hauling a skid steer and a hot tub traveling southbound when the driver, Jack Bia, lost control of the pickup as he was coming off the entrance ramp onto I-75. The skid steer was not strapped down properly and went off the trailer and through the concrete wall when Bia lost control.

Assisting OSP at the scene was Tipp City Police, Fire and EMS.

No one was seriously hurt in the crash, but Bia and one passenger was transported from the scene to an area hospital for evaluation.

Bia is being cited for failure to control and having an unsecured load.
