SYMMES TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WXIX) - Air Care responded to a crash on Interstate 275 Wednesday night, briefly closing the interstate in both directions.

The crash occurred near the Loveland-Madiera road exit in Symmes Township, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.

James Hayes, 75, in a 1997 Chevrolet Camaro, was driving westbound on the interstate when he lost control, left the interstate and rolled numerous times.

The Loveland Symmes Fire Department responded to find Hayes trapped. Crews mechanically extricated him.

UC Air Care landed in the westbound lanes of the interstate, which closed for around 40 minutes.

Hayes is listed in stable condition at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

The sheriff’s office says he was using his seatbelt at the time of the crash. It does not suspect speed, alcohol or drugs as factors.
