WARREN COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - Interstate 75 was closed in Warren County Tuesday after a deadly crash.

A 58-year-old Middletown woman is dead and an out-of-state semi truck driver has life-threatening injuries, according to Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Lebanon Post.

The eight-vehicle crash happened at 4:48 p.m. on northbound I-75 in Turtle Creek Township at the 32-mile post, OSP says.

It wasn’t until around 7:45 a.m. Wednesday that the interstate was fully reopened.

OSP released only a partial crash narrative and no cause.

At some point, a 2016 Volvo VLN commercial semi truck overturned on top of the median concrete barrier separating the northbound and southbound lanes.

The semi driver, 53-year-old Mohad Mohamed Abdi, of Minneapolis, Minnesota, was transported to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

At some point, six vehicles “became disabled in the roadway [...]as a result of the crash,” OSP says.

Those vehicles and their occupants are as follows, together with their injury statuses:

  • A 2022 Ford Bronco driven by 58-year-old Judy Ashley, of Middletown — transported to Atrium Medical Center, where she died;
  • A 2014 Ford Escape driven by 60-year-old Duane Glass, of Franklin — transported with serious injuries;

At some point, a 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 driven by 50-year-old Jenny Bowell, of Centerville, came to a stop off the right side of the roadway in the northbound lanes. She was transported to a hospital with minor injuries, though it’s unclear how she suffered them.
