HUBBARD TWP., Ohio (WKBN) – After a fiery rollover crash on Interstate 80 in Liberty Township Thursday morning, two other semis rolled over less than 24 hours later.

Around 11:45 p.m., a box truck carrying three vehicles rolled over on I-80 westbound in Liberty Township.

According to dispatch, a gas tank on the side of the semi was crushed and diesel fuel was leaking. HAZMAT was called out to the scene.

Earlier Thursday night, Ohio State Highway Patrol confirmed that another semi rolled off the side of I-80 westbound around 10:30 p.m. near mile marker 237 in Hubbard Township. Troopers did not know if the rainy weather was a factor.

No lanes were closed there, because the semi was not blocking the road. There were also no fuel leaks.

Troopers said crews will start cleaning that scene up sometime Friday morning.

They said the female driver was from Florida and had a male passenger who was taken to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital with minor injuries. Charges have not been filed yet.

Thursday morning, a semi tractor-trailer carrying around 8,000 gallons of gasoline rolled over on I-80 in Liberty Township and caught fire. Portions of the intersection were closed until Thursday afternoon.
