2 hurt in crash that closed I-75 in Arlington Heights

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, OH (FOX19) - Two men were hurt in a crash that closed Interstate 75 near Galbraith Road for about an hour Thursday night, authorities said.

The northbound lanes shut down shortly after 11 p.m. when the driver of a 2015 Honda Pilot lost control of his vehicle and it struck a guardrail, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

The Honda careened off the guardrail and slammed into a 2008 Dodge and then hit the high speed guardrail, which redirected the Honda in a southbound direction.

While traveling southbound, the Honda hit a semi tractor-trailer before continuing and striking a 2002 Jeep.

The Honda finally stopped at the ramp from Galbraith Road to northbound I-75.

A secondary crash occurred between two vehicles in the northbound lanes of the highway trying to avoid the Honda.

The Honda driver, Jonathan Wilson, was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition, sheriff's officials said.

The driver of the 2002 Jeep was taken to Bethesda North Hospital, treated for non-life threatening injuries and released.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Neither drugs nor alcohol are factors, sheriff's officials said.
