Lima, Ohio — A man was killed and 21 people were injured after a nine-vehicle crash on Interstate 75 Sunday afternoon, according to Ohio State Highway Patrol.

The crash occurred at approximately 12:25 p.m. on I-75 southbound near milepost 125 in Allen County.

75-year-old Dale K. Anglin, of Vermilion, was driving a 2019 Freightliner semitruck southbound on I-75. Troopers say Anglin was approaching slowed traffic due to a separate crash, and struck several vehicles — causing a total of nine vehicles to be involved.

64-year-old Joseph B. Schwarz, of Fairfield, was a rear seat passenger in a 2019 Chevrolet Suburban that was involved. Schwarz died from his injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene, according to OSHP.

Four people were transported to Lima Memorial Hospital, six were transported to Mercy Health St. Rita’s Medical Center, and 11 were treated at the scene.

The crash resulted in a closure of I-75 southbound lanes. The roadway has since reopened.

The Lima Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol was assisted by the Lima Fire Department, Shawnee Township Fire Department, Bath Township Fire Department, Perry Township Fire Department, Lima Allen County Paramedics, Allen County Sheriff’s Office, Allen County Coroner’s Office, Big Daddy’s Towing, Minich’s Towing, Blake’s Towing, Kenny’s Towing, Army’s Towing, H&H Funeral Services, and the Ohio Department of Transportation.
