A semi-truck, traveling northbound on Interstate 71, entered the Lytle Tunnel and lost control. The semi was found on its side leaking diesel fuel and engine oil. There was one steel coil being transported that broke loose during the crash. Fortunately, all passenger vehicles were clear of the semi, and the only injury was to the driver of the semi who suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Cincinnati Fire was able to package the driver, then extracted him through the windshield for treatment and transport to University of Cincinnati Medical Center. There appeared to be no structural damage to the tunnel itself. After securing the vehicle, the scene was turned over to CPD for investigation and removal of the wreckage.
