WHITEWATER TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- A Cincinnati man died and a Colorado man has been jailed after a crash on Interstate 275 early Sunday.
Angeson Abreha, 31, of Denver, was headed south at about 2 a.m. when he lost control in a curve, Hamilton County sheriff's officials said.
Abreha's semitrailer crossed the median near Kilby Road and hit Jason Schaller's pickup truck as Schaller drove north, the sheriff's office said.
Schaller, 35, of Cincinnati, was pronounced dead at the scene. His passenger, 30-year-old Jesse Crabtree of Cincinnati, was treated at University of Cincinnati Medical Center. His injuries weren't life threatening, sheriff's officials said.
The semitrailer overturned in the crash; Abreha was treated at Mercy West Hospital and released. He faces a charge of vehicular manslaughter and is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center, according to the sheriff's office.
The northbound lanes of I-275 were closed for nearly 10 hours as deputies investigated the crash and cleared the scene.
All three men were wearing their seatbelts, the sheriff's office said, and alcohol and drugs weren't factors in the crash.
