TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - It was a close call for one driver, after his vehicle was involved in a pair of accidents on I-75. It happened just south of Central Avenue in Central Toledo, a little after 2 this morning.

Toledo police officers tell us the driver of a car was involved in a hit-skip accident, and was on the highway, checking the damage. When a semi came around the bend and slammed into his car.

The semi continued on about 30 yards, destroying a long stretch of the guard-rail, and smashing the man's car. Nobody was injured in the crash. The driver of the car was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
