The crash happened around 1:40 p.m. when troopers say the driver was forced off the roadway, according to WCPO.

According to the report, 30-year-old Ryan Young, of Owenton, Ky., was heading east and approaching exit 132 when another driver drifted into his lane.

Young swerved to avoid the vehicle and ran off the road, went up a hill and “ramped” the US 421 interchange. The tractor-trailer struck another guardrail causing its fuel tanks to ignite.

The driver suffered minor injuries.
