A semi rollover closed State Route 65 north of Ottawa in Putnam County for around four hours this morning. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office reports the crash happened near Road 7-D just north of the village around 4:30 a.m.
The Lima post of the State Patrol says the semi was headed north on the highway when the driver failed to make a curve just past the CSX railroad tracks. The truck hit the railroad crossing guard arm, went off the road, and overturned.
The crash caused a steel coil to fall off the truck’s trailer. The driver, who was not immediately identified, suffered only minor injuries.
