All lanes open five days after fiery crash on I-275

ANDERSON TWP., OH (FOX19) - Five days after a fiery accident that shut down I-275 at the Markely Road overpass, all lanes are open. The accident happened just before 6 p.m. Wednesday.

The semi-truck that was on fire burned for hours, and the accident injured three people. The driver of the semi-truck, Bruce Gough, says his semi-truck collided with a mini-van that cut in front of him and caused his rig to spiral out of control and burst into flames.

Gough was heading eastbound on 275 around 5:30 p.m. when he says a minivan, driven by Chester Johnson, 47, and his passenger Robert Althuas, 74, cut right in front of him and forced him to hit his brakes hard.

He slammed into the back of the fan, flipping it over the side of the highway and down the embankment, where it flipped back onto its wheels, right side up, at the bottom.

All have been released from the hospital.
