A commercial truck crash on US 35 just east of Richmondale slowed the highway down for several hours Monday evening.
The Chillicothe Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol reports 31-year-old Hussein Abdirashid of Roseville, Minnesota, was southbound in a 2006 Freightliner Cascadia. Just west of Dye Lane near mile post 35, it went off the right side, struck a guardrail, and slid down an embankment.
Abdirashid was transported to Adena Regional Medical Center for minor injuries and later released.
US 35 westbound was reduced to one lane for nearly 5 hours while the trailer was removed from the scene.
Jefferson Township Fire and EMS assisted at the scene.
