Man seriously hurt in I-75 crash

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        TURTLECREEK TWP. — A Bellbrook, Ohio, man was seriously injured and three other people received minor injuries Thursday in a four-vehicle accident on Interstate 75 near Ohio 63 in Warren County.

        Matthew Governale, 35, was flown to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, where he was upgraded from critical condition to serious condition late Thursday.

        The three other victims — Brad Sprecher, 19, of Cincinnati, Steven Miller, 32, of Evendale, and Glen Wilson, 59, of Tennessee — were treated at Middletown Regional Hospital and released, hospital spokeswoman Lisa Brenner said.

        Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers said Mr. Sprecher was driving a pickup truck north on I-75 about two miles north of Ohio 63 when he lost con trol, crossed the median and ended up in the southbound lanes, resulting in multiple collisions.

        Fire crews from Monroe and Turtlecreek Township were called to the accident at 10:31 a.m. Southbound I-75 was reduced to one lane for about two hours while the scene was cleared.

        The accident remains under investigation and no charges have been filed, Trooper Pat Hathaway said.
