A Port Huron, Mich., man was killed in a single-vehicle tractor trailer accident Tuesday morning after he lost control on U.S. 20 in Wood County’s Troy Township and was ejected from the vehicle after striking a concrete median, the Ohio Highway Patrol said. Joseph Flint, 54, was pronounced dead at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, troopers at the patrol’s Bowling Green post said.

Mr. Flint was northbound on U.S. 20 near State Rt. 420 about 7 a.m. when he lost control on the icy road, struck a concrete median, and was ejected from the rig, troopers said.

His body was then run over by the semi trailer, troopers said.

Mr. Flint was not wearing a seat belt. The crash remains under investigation.Source
