A semi driver is recovering after being injured in a crash Wednesday morning.

The crash occurred around 3 a.m. on I-75 southbound near the I-475 split.

Police said another semi swerved in front of the Kimotho, causing him to swerve out of the way. He crashed into cement barriers before he flipped into a ditch.

Kimotho was taken to Mercy Hospital in Perrysburg with minor injuries. He was cited for failure to control.

Crews are still working to remove the semi and clean up the debris on the scene.
