Bowen Rogers, of Springfield, was cited with failure to control after a three-vehicle crash on Thursday at 7:45 a.m.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Rogers was operating a four-door Honda northbound on I-75 when he lost control of the vehicle in the rain at mile marker 91 and went off the right side of the road and hit the guardrail. The vehicle then came back onto the roadway and struck a semitrailer, driven by Christopher Dyer, of Dayton. The collision forced the semi off the left side of the road into the median and caused it to hit the guide-wire in the median. Debris, including broken-off vehicle parts, flew into the southbound lanes and hit the southbound vehicle on I-75 that was driven by Brooke Chinn, of Botkins, causing damage.

No one was injured in the crash.

Other than OSP, Mantor Auto responded to tow the semitrailer from the scene. And Wreckers Towing and Transport towed the Honda away. Chinn’s vehicle was able to be driven away from the scene.
