Police and medics were dispatched to the crash on I-75 over Stanley Avenue around 4 a.m., according to Dayton Police Lt. David Matthews.

“The semi-truck apparently lost control and rolled off the highway into an embankment near the entrance ramp of Stanley [Avenue],” Matthews said.

The semi was heading northbound on I-75 in the first lane from the east shoulder and when at Stanley Avenue left the east side of the roadway, collided with the guardrail, the bridge wall barrier, went over the bridge wall, and struck a utility pole and overhead sign support, according to a Dayton police crash report.
