By Michael Ullery



Mike Ullery | Daily Call I-75 traffic is at a stand-still following a crash at the 83 mile marker. Freezing rain led to the early Thursday morning crash. Radio reports indicate that the driver lost control after hitting a patch of ice and crashed at an estimated 60 miles per hour. At least one person was transported by Piqua Fire Department medics. Her name and where she is from has not been released. I-75 was closed in both directions as troopers from the Piqua Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol investigated the crash and salt crews able to spread salt across the overpasses. Both north and southbound I-75 were re-opened to traffic by 8:30 a.m.
