MAUMEE, OH (Toledo News Now) -

An injury accident involving a semi truck early Wednesday morning sent one driver to the hospital.

It happened around 5:30 a.m. on Interstate 475 northbound between the Salisbury exits and Airport Highway.

Police say a female truck driver was transported to the hospital by EMS, but her injuries are not life-threatening.

U.S. Route 23 northbound was shut down to one lane, causing traffic to slow as much as 8 mph, and back ups past U.S. Route 24.

Emergency crews have since cleared the wreckage, and driving speeds have returned to normal.

Additional accidents occurred Wednesday morning, causing delays in multiple areas.
