OSHP troopers step up I-75 patrols after accidents


LEBANON, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio State Highway Patrol will closely monitor an Interstate 75 construction zone in southwest Ohio after recent semitrailer crashes caused lengthy delays and a highway shutdown.

The patrol says the Lebanon and Dayton posts will increase enforcement in Montgomery and Warren counties beginning today and continuing through April.

More troopers will be on the highway specifically during 24-hour periods today, Thursday and Friday weekly. They’ll focus on speeders, drivers following too closely and other aggressive driving with an emphasis on commercial violations.

Speed checks also will be made from the air.

Both sides of I-75 in Warren County were shut down for hours this month after a semitrailer landed on top of a car, causing injuries. Another semitrailer crash the next day shut down northbound lanes for hours.
