Sharonville police said the crash happened at approximately 1:15 a.m. on southbound I-75 near the Sharon Road exit in northern Hamilton County approximately a mile from the Butler County border.
According to police, a medical helicopter was called to the scene but efforts to revive Walter Gibson Jr. of Fairfield, the driver of the car police said crossed from northbound I-75 into the southbound lanes, were unsuccessful.
