Celina driver hurt when semi transporting pigs crashes

ENGLEWOOD — According to an investigation by the Dayton Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Derrick Selhorst, 43, of Celina, was driving a commercial semi-tractor trailer that was transporting 200 mature pigs on Tuesday morning.

Selhorst was traveling on the ramp from state Route 49 to Interstate 70 eastbound in Montgomery County when he failed to maintain control of his vehicle while navigating a curve on the ramp. The semi traveled off the right side of the road and struck the bridge support for the Diamond Mill overpass before overturning.

Selhorst was transported to Miami Valley Hospital with serious injuries.

The livestock, which were being transported from Rossburg to Louisville, Kentucky, were contained to the crash area. The roadway was closed following the crash and reopened just before 2 p.m. Tuesday.

The Ohio Department of Transportation, Clay Township Police Department, Englewood Fire/EMS, Dill Homestead Farm and Englewood Towing all assisted the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
