DAYTON — UPDATE @ 10:04 p.m.: Dayton crews have reopened the ramps to I-75 North from U.S. 35 East and West after a semi trailer tipped over this afternoon.
The trailer was full of frozen food and had to be unloaded and taken to Walmart, according to officials on scene.
The driver was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
UPDATE @ 6:35 p.m.: The semitrailer was headed west on U.S. 35 when the driver apparently lost control on the ramp to I-75 North, Dayton police Sgt. Andrew Zecchini said, and the driver will be cited for failure to control a motor vehicle.
Traffic investigators are speculating that speed and shifting cargo were contributing factors in the accident, which sent the driver to a hospital complaining about a headache, the sergeant said.
The ramps from U.S. 35 East and West to I-75 North remain closed while the trailer's cargo of frozen food is being removed. Once the trailer is empty, a heavy duty wrecker will be able to right the big rig to get all of it off the ramp.
The food was headed to Walmart, Zecchini said.
UPDATE @ 5:58 p.m.:
The driver of the semi suffered minor injuries and has been taken to a hospital. The trailer is full of frozen food and it will have to be unloaded, according to officials on scene.
The spill is radiator fluid, not diesel fuel, and it has been contained, officials said.
UPDATE @ 5:39 p.m.:
We're hearing that the ramps from U.S. 35 East and West to I-75 North will be shut down three to four hours.
An overturned semi on the ramp to I-75 North from U.S. 35 East has that ramp and the ramp from U.S. 35 West to the interstate closed as well.

The company is selling Prime memberships — which include free fast shipping — for a discounted $5.99 monthly rate, compared to the full $12.99 rate.
“We hope to make Prime even more accessible,” Cem Sibay, Amazon Prime vice president, stated in a blog post about the discount.

Medicaid, a joint state-federal health insurance program, covers more than 3 million Ohioans.
The New York Times said while Amazon has successfully attracted affluent shoppers, it is struggled to attract people with low incomes. The Medicaid discount could be a way to draw low income consumers to Amazon’s site and away from its rival Walmart.
