Car crushed when container falls from passing semi truck


A car was crushed in Ohio on Tuesday afternoon after a semi truck struck a railroad overpass and dislodged its load. 

The accident happened on November 15th at 3:26 p.m. in Butler County, Ohio. 

According to Fox 19 News, a semi truck hauling a metal container was passing beneath a railroad overpass at Dixie Highway/Route 4 at St. Clair Avenue when it struck the overpass. The metal container was then knocked from the trailer and landed on a nearby Ford Fusion, crushing the car. 

Two people inside of the car were transported to a nearby hospital with injuries described as “potentially serious.” The truck driver was not hurt in the incident. 

Dixie Highway between Symmes Road and Corwin Avenue was closed until after 8:30 p.m. that evening. No further information has been released. It is unclear if any citations were issued in the accident.
