HUBBARD, Ohio (WKBN) – An accident involving a semi, motorcycle and charter bus on Interstate 80 Thursday night put one man in the hospital and left investigators with questions.

The crash happened about 6 p.m. near mile marker 236 in Hubbard.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, a semi truck sideswiped the biker and drove off, not realizing it had hit 56-year-old Albert Bonetti, Jr.

Bonetti Jr. flew off his bike, which was then run over by the bus. He did not get hit by the bus, but Highway Patrol says he was not wearing a helmet.

He has a few bruises and broken ribs and was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital.

Traffic in the westbound lane of I-80 was at a standstill while crews cleared the scene.
