UPDATE: Two Killed in I-75 Chain-Reaction Crash (LINK TO CRUISER CAM)

TIPP CITY-- Tipp City Police were the first on the scene Wednesday night.  Officers pulled up  to the fiery crash that  involved  3 semis and 4 cars.

 Police scrambled trying to see if anyone needed help and  they found one woman hurt in her car. A Tipp City Officer helped a woman out of car  and got her out of harms way.

The cruiser cam video showed  two of the semis going up in  a  ball of flames.
The drivers in both semis  were killed and the  woman who  was  pulled out of her car was taken to  the hospital.
         
Witnesses  stood along the interstate in disbelief
 
"Both semis were completely on fire you couldn't  tell how many were involved. It was just a big ball of fire that just kept getting bigger." Shauna McClaskey said.

Troopers said the crash was caused when one of  the semis couldn't  stop when traffic was slowed because of construction,  and  the driver  crashed into another vehicle, which caused a domino effect.
        
The impact of  the collision caused two of the semis to erupt in flames.
 
Fire fighters from several departments rushed to the scene and extinguished the flames.
 
When the fire was out, the shells of  the burnt semis was all that was left.
 
ODOT spent Thursday cleaning up and repaving the charred interstate... as drivers crawled along in one lane.  Two lanes are expected to open  up by 5 pm. 

Troopers are not releasing the names of any of the victims at this time.

UPDATE: Two Killed in I-75 Chain-Reaction Crash

TIPP CITY -- A section of I-75 south is still shut down after a fiery semi crash last night.
   
It happened about 10:00 Wednesday night. Seven vehicles were involved in the crash within a construction zone.

Troopers say the traffic had slowed and one semi could not stop in time and hit a car. That car then hit another semi, which hit a third semi, pushing it into three other cars. Two semis and a car burst into flames.

It took a while to put that fire out. For a while the northbound lane of I-75 was closed also because of the debris.

"The flames just kept coming back. I was here for about 45 minutes and they just kept spraying it and the flames just kept coming back," said Shauna McClaskey, who witnessed the aftermath of the crash.

Others reported hearing explosions.
   
The Highway Patrol says the two people who were killed were in the semi trucks. One woman who was in a car was taken to the hospital. Her condition is unknown at this time.
     
The crash is still under investigation.



Earlier coverage:

TIPP CITY -- Two people are dead after a fiery crash on I-75.

State troopers tell us seven vehicles were involved, including three semis.  Initial reports indicate traffic was slowed down due to construction, when one of those semis hit a car, which hit another semi, then that semi was pushed into three other cars.  Two semis were fully engulfed in flames.  I-75 is expected to be shut down for a while.  Troopers say for a detour you can exit on State Route 571 to County Road 25A, and then take Northwoods Blvd. to get back to I-75.



Earlier coverage:

TIPP CITY -- Southbound lanes on I-75 at State Route 571 and Northbound lanes on I-75 at Northwoods Blvd are shut down.

It appears the fire is now out. 

Ohio State Highway Patrol tells us people were injured in the accident.  We're still working to figure out how many people were injured and the extent of their injuries.

Many people who live and work nearby tell us they saw massive flames and heard explosions.  Our crew at the scene tells us firefighters from a half dozen departments had to keep refilling tankers in order to get the inferno extinguished. It took them nearly an hour to put out the flames completely.

OSP accident reconstruction crews are on the scene.  They highway will be shut down for several hours.

Check back for more details as they become available.
