ENGLEWOOD — A Huber Heights man was killed in a wrong-way crash on Interstate 70 west near the Taywood Road overpass Monday morning, according to state troopers.
Michael O’Shea, 46, was pronounced dead on the scene and an autopsy, to include toxicology, will be conducted to determine his cause and manner of death.
The crash was reported around 2:15 a.m. Monday and O’Shea was the driver of a Ford Explorer that was travelling east in the westbound lanes of the highway, according to troopers.
A truck driver who witnessed the crash said O’Shea was driving the wrong-way on the highway with no headlights before he crashed head-on into a semi, however troopers said it was too early to make that determination.
“I didn’t see no headlights or anything,” said Jacob Cartwright, who witnessed the crash. “All I saw was…the taillights of the semi just go flying across the road into a ditch.”
Troopers said O’Shea also side-swiped another vehicle before hitting the semi.
Troopers are working to identify where O’Shea entered the highway driving the wrong way.
The westbound lanes were shut down for several hours while crews investigated the crash. The driver of the semi suffered injuries no believed to be life threatening.

XENIA — Hundreds of motorcyclists and their families gathered at Kil-Kare Raceway for the 18th annual Blessing of the Bikes Sunday afternoon in Xenia.
Always held on the 3rd Sunday in May, the event raises money for veterans and charities, and tries to promote a positive image of motorcycling in the community.
Clergy pray for bikers who have the opportunity to have their motorcycles blessed during a ceremony for safe riding.
GreeneBucs, a local chapter of Ambucs, an organization dedicated to the mobility of children and people with disabilities, presented Amtrykes therapeutic tricycles to five children and two veterans before the ceremony.
In addition to raising money for charity, the event also promotes driver safety and teaches other drivers what they can do to avoid collisions with riders.
Lawrence Taylor, Blessing of the Bikes Chairman, says people have to understand that motorcycles are different and you have to adjust the way you drive.
"They are smaller, they are in your blind spots more often and they tend to come out of the middle of nowhere it seems," Taylor said. "If you look over your shoulder when you are changing lanes, you will be able to see them a lot faster."
Attendees enjoyed live music, sampled food from several vendors, received T-shirts, bandannas and door prizes.
