A dump truck driver was killed in a one-vehicle crash on I-75 in Wapakoneta Thursday afternoon around one o’clock.
The Wapakoneta Post of the State Highway Patrol reports that John Austin, 39, of Lima, was driving a dump truck southbound on 75 in the right lane when the dump bed began to rise.
The dump bed struck the Bellefontaine Street overpass and the truck overturned onto its top.
The dump bed was completely torn from the truck and landed in the southbound lanes. Several other drivers had to maneuver around the crash.
Austin was pronounced dead at the scene.
He was wearing a seat belt and alcohol is not a factor.
The crash remains under investigation.
