Two jack-knifed semis shut down the southbound lanes of I-75 early Thursday morning, just before 5 a.m. 

37-year-old Lucas Dietz of Pandora lost control of his rig on a rainy curve just south of the Hanthorn Road overpass. His semi hit a cable barrier and jack-knifed in the median. Another semi, driven by 65-year-old Alan Ammon of Etna, Ohio, also jack-knifed in the southbound lanes trying to avoid the first accident.

Those lanes were shut down for nearly three hours as Ohio Department of Transportation made repairs, two wreckers removed the trucks, and the EMA cleaned up around 100 gallons of diesel. No one was hurt. Dietz was cited for failure to maintain reasonable control.
