Preliminary investigation revealed that William W. Woods, age 51, of Dayton, Ohio, was driving a 2018 Volvo semi tractor-trailer west on Interstate 70 when he left the roadway, driving off the right side of Interstate 70.  Woods then over-corrected, causing the tractor-trailer to roll onto the driver’s side and into the ditch. Further investigation by Master Trooper Petrowski revealed that Woods displayed signs of impairment and was under the influence of a controlled substance.  Woods did sustain injuries from the accident and was transported to Regional Hospital for medical care.  Once cleared medically, Woods was arrested and taken to the Vigo County Jail where he is currently being held on bond.

Interstate 70 westbound, at the one-mile marker, was reduced down to one lane for approximately three hours while the accident scene was being cleaned.
