Man Killed in Dump Truck Wreck on I-75

A Lima man was killed after a dump truck crashed on I-75 near Wapakoneta on Thursday afternoon.

The State Highway Patrol said it took place under the Bellefontaine Street overpass- when the bed of the dump truck began to rise- causing the truck to turn onto its top.

The accident blocked the southbound lanes- and traffic was tied up for a few hours.

39 year-old John R Austin of Lima was pronounced dead at the scene.

He was wearing a seatbelt- and alcohol was not a factor.
