Accident closes WB I-275 for several hours, UPS driver cited

(FOX19) -

A UPS driver has been cited following an accident that shut down westbound I-275 for several hours.

The accident happened around 4:15 p.m. Monday afternoon near Loveland Madeira Road in Symmes Township. The westbound lanes of I-275 were completely shut down for several hours as crews cleared the scene.

Officers say that a UPS semi tractor trailer, driven by 55-year-old Phillip Dunsing, failed to observe a disabled truck in the center lane of westbound I-275.

Police say the disabled Richter Landscaping truck, driven by 26-year-old Charles Caudell, was reportedly unable to move. Police say the UPS truck struck the rear end of Caudell's vehicle, forcing it off the left side of the roadway and into the median. Officers say that the UPS truck veered off the right side of the roadway, coming to a rest in the embankment.

Both drivers were transported to Bethesda North Hospital. The drivers were treated and released.

Police say that Dunsing was cited for failure to maintain an assured crash distance ahead.
