A truck driver is in critical condition and a “team effort” is being credited with saving his life, following an explosive accident on I-75 in Moraine Thursday.
Officials say two cars and a tractor-trailer were involved in the fiery three-vehicle crash near the Edwin C. Moses Boulevard exit.
We are now learning that a group of motorists helped drag the truck driver away from the fiery scene and helped extinguish his clothes. The semi-trailer was carrying diesel fuel and shortly following the collision witnesses reported seeing flames shooting about five feet into the air.
The driver of the truck reportedly remains in critical condition at Miami Valley Hospital, while the driver of the other vehicle was treated and released. Fire crews spent hours on the scene mopping up gallons of diesel fuel that was spilled in the wreckage. As a result, traffic was diverted around the area, creating gridlock on exit ramps and nearby streets. Also, the chaos brought traffic to a standstill in both directions on I-75, for hours. The accident remains under investigation by the Moraine Police Department.
