A highway remains closed in Wood County today following an ammonia spill. The State Highway Patrol reports the crash happened Thursday around 8:20 a.m. at the intersection of State Route 281 and Huffman Road near Portage.
A semi carrying ammonia was driving east on Route 281 when a pickup truck driven by 41-year-old Scott Reiman of Bowling Green ran a stop sign and caused the collision. The semi rolled over, spilling ammonia onto the road and into three ditches.
Route 281 could be closed until the weekend as the cleanup continues.
The driver of the tractor-trailer, 23-year-old Joshua Whitaker of Fowler, Indiana, was taken to the University of Toledo Medical Center. He was last listed in critical, but stable condition. Reiman was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
