Scenes from the accident show one semi-truck engulfed in flames. According to the Henry County Sherriff's Office, the Windsor truck driver hit the trailer of another truck that was stopped for a train. The force of the crash caused the truck to slam into another passenger vehicle, which then rebounded into another commercial vehicle.
Because the victims truck was carrying batteries, it was engulfed in flames. The fire spread to another truck shortly thereafter.
One victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries while two others were uninjured.
Police are still investigating what may have caused the Windsor truck driver to run into the second semi-trailer. The Ohio Department of Transportation is working on repairing the pavement on U.S. 24.
