VAN WERT – A semi overturned on US 224 near Van Wert-Decatur Road just before noon on Wednesday.

According to one spectator, the semi hit the rear of a vehicle after the vehicle turned in front of the semi, which then caused the semi to flip. At the time of press, traffic  was backed up on US 224 going westbound as well as on Van Wert Decatur Road entering onto US 224.

The Van Wert County Sheriff Department, Van Wert Fire and EMS, and the Ohio State Highway Patrol were on scene immediately following the accident.

Scanner traffic indicated that injuries were unknown.

** This story has been updated to reflect that the semi did not rear-end the vehicle as was originally reported over scanner traffic when the 911 call went out.
