Crash closes US 6 in Williams County

A single-vehicle crash on U.S. 6 in Williams County, Ohio, early Friday closed the highway for several hours while crews worked to clean up scrap metal that had been scattered across the road.

At 4:35 a.m., Kevin D. Rushing Jr. was transporting metal in a 2001 Freightliner with a trailer when he lost control of the vehicle near Milepost 16 in Pulaski Township, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.

The trailer went off the right side of the road and then overturned across U.S. 6, spilling scrap metal.

Rushing, from Toledo, was taken to Bryan Community Hospital, where he was treated and released Friday. He was cited for failure to maintain control of a motor vehicle, police said.
