Route 11 semi crash

LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) — A truck driver from Ravenna was treated for minor injuries at St. Elizabeth Health Center following a crash in Columbiana County Friday afternoon.

The driver, Jeremy L. Abels, 41, was traveling southbound on Route 11 just past the Lisbon exit around 4 p.m. He went off the side of the road, hit several guardrails and then over compensated and rolled his truck over into the middle median.

Abels was hauling powdered concrete, which spilled on the highway. He was driving for NAJ Trucking in Twinsburg.

Traffic was down to one lane each way for a short time.
