Semi versus semi crash closed Interstate 70 for hours Monday afternoon; no serious injuries

PERRY TOWNSHIP – The Ohio Highway Patrol is investigating a two-vehicle crash on eastbound Interstate 70 near mile marker 164 Monday afternoon.

A Freightliner driven by Ronnie McNeely, 58, of Crestview, Florida, was traveling west on I-70 when it lost control, crossed the median and entered eastbound I-70, blocking both lanes. A Peterbilt driven by Joseph Martin, 40, of Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, was traveling eastbound on I-70 and attempted to avoid McNeely, but struck the Freightliner.

Both drivers were treated at the scene by Perry Township EMS and eastbound I-70 was closed for several hours due to a large amount of food-safe material spilled onto the highway.

Assisting at the scene were Perry Township Fire Department and EMS, New Concord Fire Department, Muskingum County EMA and the Ohio Department of Transportation.

The crash is still under investigation.
