On July 8, an Ohio dump truck driver was seriously injured when his vehicle collided with a commercial semi-truck. The crash occurred on U.S. 33 near Interstate 75 in Wapakoneta at approximately 9:50 a.m.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has some data out on commercial motor vehicle fatalities in 2017 that should be of interest to drivers in Ohio. Among other matters, the FMCSA noted an increase in CMV crash fatalities from 3,193 in 2009 to 5,005 in 2017. Ohio saw a 1.2 percent increase, though that is not as dramatic as the increase in Florida (27 percent) or Georgia (19.7 percent).
