Truck Crash Near Defiance

The dri­ver of a trac­tor trailer is lucky fol­low­ing a crash Wednes­day morn­ing on US-24 west of Defi­ance. The dri­ver, whose name has not been released, was treated at ProMed­ica Defi­ance Regional Hos­pi­tal after his rig left the road­way just after 6am Wednes­day, trav­eled down a steep bank, into a ditch and finally stopped some 60 feet off the road. A 50-gallon diesel fuel tank was leak­ing, but accord­ing to the EMA which was called in, only about five gal­lons of fuel spilled, and that was cleaned up. Bad weather is being blamed.
