MONROE, OH (FOX19) -

Emergency crews were called to an overturned semi-truck on the ramp to Ohio 63 in Monroe.

Police say the overturned tractor trailer was reported around 1:30 p.m. on the southbound exit ramp of Route 4 to OH 63.

In the accident, the semi leaked both diesel and oil onto the road. Officials say the trailer was a flatbed trailer carrying non-hazardous construction material and was the only vehicle involved in the accident.

Both police and fire were called to the scene. The ramp was closed for a few hours as crews worked to remove both the semi and trailer.

The driver was taken to the Atrium Medical Center for injuries.

No word yet his condition.
